About

The Book Vault

The Book Vault is part of Suite 22 Antiques. While out buying for Suite 22, I found myself fascinated with the tooled leather covers and ornate artwork of the old religious books / bibles. I would purchase them whenever anything that caught my eye became available. As my collection outgrew the space my home provided, I though that an Etsy store was the perfect platform to share some of my finds with the world.

As The Book Vault grew, we expanded into other book genres and paper ephemera. It didn't take long to find other people, from around the world, who, like me, find value in things that may otherwise seem forgotten. I have made it my goal to bring new life to these pieces and deliver them to those who share my love of old books!

    I'm a history buff and avid book collector. Not only do I enjoy spending hours on the road with my wife, hunting down treasures from the past, I've been known to spend hours researching and learning the history of specific pieces.

Frequently asked questions

What items will you refund or exchange?

All books are in vintage and antique condition, therefore all books are sold as is. Please read my item descriptions carefully as I sell vintage and antique books that show varying degrees of age and use. I sell my books as I find them and you will receive them as pictured. If you feel a book was not accurately described contact me within three days of receiving your item and we will discuss a return.

Will you barter prices or trade product?

I spend my weekends in my car racking up countless miles zig-zagging through the back roads of Ohio and nearby states. I dig through damp basements, musty attics, greasy garages and dirty barns and have ruined many clothes. I do this to hunt down books at the best prices so I can pass the savings to you. For this reason, I do not barter my prices nor do I trade merchandise. I feel my items are priced fairly and reasonably based on research, quality, condition, rarity and my investment (time and monetary) in each item. Thank you for your understanding!

Will you reserve a book for me?

I will be happy to reserve a book for you for up to seven days. After the seventh day, the book will be taken off hold and be available to others again.

My book never arrived, what do I do?

I provide tracking information with every order. Each order can be tracked directly to your door. Please convo me with and problems or concerns.

I cannot be responsible for stolen packages. If you would like to add insurance or a signature confirmation to your shipping cost please message me before your purchase and I will be happy to accommodate you.

Please be sure your shipping address is up to date. I ship to the address you provide on Etsy. I cannot be held responsible for packages that are undelivered due to incorrect addresses. If your package is returned to me you can choose to have it reshipped at your cost or receive a refund minus the shipping cost.

How quickly do you process and order?

I ship all orders via USPS within 2 business days of payment received. Tracking and delivery confirmation are included in the cost of shipping.

I drop packages off at the post office Monday - Friday around noon. If your order goes in before noon of that day, it will most likely ship that same day. I do not ship on Saturdays because I am up with the birds and on the road to hunt down more treasures for my shop! If you purchase something Friday afternoon, Saturday or Sunday it will ship Monday morning.

Please be advised that international orders do not have a guaranteed delivery date as they can be delayed in customs.

Do you combine shipping?

Yes! Etsy will automatically combine shipping as you add items to your cart. I try to find the fastest and most affordable way to ship and will refund any shipping overages that may occur.
