Jessica's Profile

About

Hey there!

I'm Jessica and I'm a Pisces who enjoys the quiet of a good book. I love all things vintage, but find myself gravitating towards fairy tale, pop culture, and fantasy books. With limited shelf space, I pride myself is sharing these delightful and rare items with friends and loved ones.

I love my city; Grand Rapids is a wonderful place to live. I'm also a published author with a tech-obsessed husband who truly supports my various passions. Our roommates are two rescue animals who spend their days watching me work. Grand Rapids is a city with a wonderful history. This is great news, because vintage books are everywhere! I currently have a very large bookcase teeming with items waiting to be released. If there is something specific you are looking for, send a message my way.

I'm a huge book…

Hey there!

I'm a huge book fanatic and I feel sad for all the lost books without a great home. So I'm connecting these treasures with all of the internet. Vintage decor, sewing patterns and paper ephemera are other vintage treasures I enjoy. You can see these in The Book Cottage and in Retro Papers, my second shop, on etsy!

In The Book Cottage, I try to make each item packaged and put together in a way I would want to receive it. Recycling is very important to me, and so is giving you a book you cherish for a lifetime! I package my books in brown paper, just like the good old days, and wrap it in twine. This makes the perfect gift for anyone you can dream of! No message required - I do this special for each and every customer. Your love of the written word is something I love to share with you. Paper, envelopes, and packing material (when required) may be reused or repurposed from other sources.

I hope you love your shopping visit on etsy. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or comments.

From one book lover to another-
