This book is local to my area of NH and VT. Allen R Foley was a Professor of American History at Dartmouth College (Hanover, NH).

In 1971 he wrote this book comprised of a collection of real old time "stories" from long-time Vermonters.

It is loaded with short quips, stories and one-liners that all have a ring of truth to them. A humorous look at life with that "dry" sense of humor us "Yankee's" seem to posess.

A VERY enjoyable read...

Grampa's Attic takes NO REFUNDS due to the nature of the items sold, despite what Etsy has said 'for me' in the above statement as Etsy can not speak for me about my own policies, regarding defective or damaged goods, I cover ALL these problems in all of my policy statements. If there are any flaws, there will be pictures of them in the listing and spoken about in the description so you do not get any surprises. Again, this is all due to the nature of the items you are purchasing. If I myself miss something or get a surprise myself, you are well compensated for your time and for your disappointment, just check the reviews column in my store to find an example. I think there is only one example of that occurrence.

should the unthinkable happen such as a glass item break on it's way to you. The proper procedure to handle this is to put EVERYTHING, the item, the stuffing, every scrap and ounce of material back into the box and bring it back to the Post Office asap who delivered it to your door. You must do this within 24 hours or less. As long as the weights line up and everything looks good, they will be happy to accommodate the amount of money stated on the packing slip. I believe the PO has automatic coverage of $100.00 already built into the PO's system. If your item is more than $100.00, contact me before the sale that I can insert an amount insurance of your choice on the order, you will have to "buy" the insurance, it's not free, that's them, not me.
This is the responsibility of the buyer, NOT the seller. After all, you ARE buying someone else's unwanted items and that is why my logo reads like it does. There is absolutely NOTHING that I can help you with about this incident.
I've had 2 customers in the life time of this shop who refused to follow these procedures and instead spent days and days arguing with me about refunds and thievery and sins and you name it. That is a waste of time and your money.
ALWAY READ POLICIES BEFORE MAKING A PURCHASE FROM ANYONE. That's only common sense. Please leave me out of your hissy-fits.

Shipping policies

IT IS HELPFUL IF THE BUYER PUTS IN THE zip code, city and state in your own profile as it helps me figure out a more accurate shipping cost without having to play email tag with you with only delays the shipment.

NOTE TO NON-USA BUYERS: I have set up my shipping costs for the USA only. Should you like to purchase something, contact me and I will set aside the item and get your address (please include in your message) and figure out what the shipping will be and then you can decide if you still would like to purchase the item. Thanks to you, Grampa
