About BoxThirteen

Sales 1,287
On Etsy since 2014

I'm on a quest to build beautiful libraries.

I love books. Mysterious libraries. The glow of light reflecting on gold lettering. Antique volumes from a long forgotten past. Winter evenings settled in with an old favorite novel...

My goal is to help you build your personal library. And to preserve the vintage books of yesteryear. I love old books. I love the smell of old books. I love the feel of old books. I love thinking about who might have owned them and where they have been. Books change cultures, build nations and tear them down, and make impressions upon a child's mind-- indelible pictures and ideals they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. For good or evil. Books are delightful, educational, powerful, and dangerous. In short books are one of the greatest treasures and on this mortal earth.

Thank you for dropping in to browse this little bookshop corner of the Internet. I'm glad you stopped by!


P.S. The Story Behind The Name:

The name of my shop, "Box Thirteen," comes from a childhood favorite detective radio show-- "Box 13." It is an old time radio show from the 1940's that starred Alan Ladd as Dan Holiday; an author who does detective work to get ideas for his novels--and has life-threatening adventures as a consequence...
