Clever little OAK tea light holder. Shipped quickly and was very securely wrapped.

Very interesting turn of the century books from the perspective of the economy in the early 1900s. Good finds!

The Book Gene

The one trait shared by everyone in my family is a love of reading. There are other interests, sure - some philosophers, and some linguists, and some musical talent - but the one thing we all have is a love of books.

Leabharlann Daideo began as a way to re-home some of the many books that my grandfather owned - books that were too special, too unusual, or too unique to pass on to the charity shop.

While the majority of the items in my store came from my grandfather, I add quirky vintage items from time to time; gems from the past rescued from my mother's attic, or childhood toys that are ready for a new adventure.

    I believe in books. Not Kindles, not iPads, but real, hardcover, clothbound, gorgeous, tactile, books!

I started Leabharlann Daideó as a way to rehome some of the many, many vintage books and other little treasures I have inherited over the years, in particular from my Grandfather, who was a passionate reader.

More recently I have been adding found treasures and homewares that have been hidden away in my parents attic for 30+ years - there's a lot of family history happening here!

I do my best to describe all items accurately and to list photos that represent the items in their true condition.

I check my mail regularly and am always happy to answer any questions you might have. Say hello!

I'm based in Ireland, which means Etsy lets me accept payments via PayPal, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover.

I'm also all in favour of renewing the age-old tradition of bartering.

I ship items as soon as payment has cleared.

Cancellations are a-okay as long as you cancel your order before it has shipped.
I ship orders as soon as payment has cleared - for most payments this is straight away. Payments via eCheck through PayPal tend to take a little longer.

I will send a shipping confirmation email through Etsy on the day your item is shipped.

Most of my items ship via regular mail, but more expensive items go via Registered Post which requires a signature on arrival.

I mark my packages as 'used goods'; if there are any customs or taxes on your end they are your responsibility.

I can always ship internationally - just convo me for a quote if you don't see your area listed.
