About ForgottenBookmarks

Sales 4,430
On Etsy since 2008

Lost between the pages

We have been selling used and rare books since 1984, and in 2007 I started the blog FORGOTTEN BOOKMARKS to show off some of the interesting items I've found left behind in books. The blog led to two books of my very own, and this Etsy shop was born from the interest of many of the blog's readers.

Now, I am happy to offer some of those lost items as well as interesting vintage books, prints, maps and magazines. There are even some of the decorative book pieces I come across in my day-to-day bookselling life.

I love what I do and I hope that passion comes through as you browse the shop.
