I try to be super-detailed in my book descriptions - this way you know what you're going to get. Vintage books are vintage books: they're not going to be perfect.

Personally, I love books even when they're a little worse for a wear - I think they're a worthwhile purchase if you can still read them and/or use them to decorate your home (because that's another awesome use for old books).

Every book in the shop will probably have a bit of the "old book smell" about it - I'll only make note of that in the listings if it's particularly... pungent.

If you have any questions about the book you're interested in, want a more detailed description OR would like to see a few extra images - just let me know!

I'd never sell any book that I wouldn't personally be happy spending money on - but my definition of what makes a book in "purchasable condition" may be different than yours, so please be sure to read the condition notes carefully before ordering.

You know yourself - if you're someone who is very particular about what your books look like, buying vintage books online may not be the best choice. You should purchase them in a store where you can actually examine them by hand. Many of my books are old library books - they've been loved a lot. I'm not a fancy book dealer: I sell books to enjoy and read, even if they're a little bit worse for the wear.

Long story short, if you're looking for books in immaculate condition, this probably isn't the shop for you.

Returns and exchange details
PLEASE look over the description of the book in detail before you purchase it - I try to accurately describe the condition of the item so you don't have any surprises once it gets to you. It's not pleasant for you or for me if you don't read the description and are disappointed with what you receive. Some of my books will have rips or stains or writing in the margins - if this is something that bothers you, you may not want to order from me. But! I always let you know in the—yes—description!

If (horrors of horrors) you're dissatisfied with your book... just send me a convo or email - I'll try to work it out with you. I want you to be happy! That would make me a happy Etsy shop owner.

In general, if you want a refund you'll need to return the book to me (in the condition it was in when I sent it) and I'll refund your money once I receive it. There are no refunds for shipping costs.
