Quality Books for Children and Collectors

Welcome to The Charmed Bookshop!

I offer quality books for children, young adults, readers of great literature, and collectors. I strive to find first edition books in very good to fine condition, and most of the children's books will have original dust jackets.

For books to be sold on Etsy, they must qualify as vintage, and vintage is defined as at least twenty years old. Please visit TheCharmedBookshop.com, an Etsy-powered public Website, for a complete selection of newer and vintage books.

I believe in the freedom of children to read; to explore their imaginations, to think and dream, to reason through literary adventures, dilemmas, and dangers. There isn’t a child who doesn’t appreciate being over-estimated. Many stories now considered classic children's literature were not written for children, they were simply free to read them.

I'm especially fond of children's books that legendary book editor Ursula Nordstrom might have called “good books for bad children”. During her time at Harper, from the 1930s to 1980, Nordstrom looked for imaginative, talented authors and artists whose work connected with children and reflected their times. As the New York Times wrote, “Bad children were those normal youngsters who, like Max in Maurice Sendak's ''Where the Wild Things Are,'' were occasionally put to bed without their supper.”

And I love mysteries! Thanks to Harriet the Spy and Nancy Drew. Please feel free to drop me a note with your favorite mysteries for children and adults.

With many thanks for visiting The Charmed Bookshop -

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

I wrap every book with care and ship it in a padded mailing envelope or sturdy box. If you're purchasing a gift, please advise when ordering and include a gift message.

Care instructions

1. I lightly clean books, as needed, but I don't attempt repairs or restoration. If you'd like a book restored, you'll find trustworthy, qualified experts in your area through libraries or museums.

I also recommend the following care instructions.
