Eclectic prints on vintage book pages

I like old books and I cannot lie. That, in a nutshell, is it. I love the dusty feel, the musty smell (mostly) and the fusty look of old books. I love reading inscriptions on inside covers and notes in margins. I often wonder how many previous owners a book had. And who they were, and how and when they lived.

I enjoy taking forgotten, unwanted "red-headed stepchildren" books and giving them new love and new life (apologies to redheads and stepchildren!), then sending them out into the world where they can spread their wings and spread more joy!

I also take other forgotten books, group them with friends, and send them out into the world to live and love. If you'd like the whole book and nothing but the book, check them out in my other shop, The Grass Harpist.
I have books for sale and other many other "Vintage Goods, Aged to Perfection".

You have 10 calendar days from the date your order was shipped to contact me if there is a problem with your order. Please convo me before you leave feedback so I may have the opportunity to try and resolve any problem. If I make a mistake with your order you may keep the wrong print and I will send you the correct print. You will need to send me a photo of the incorrect print.

If you do not receive your order please check with your Post Office or Postal Carrier. The large envelopes usually don't fit in regular mail boxes. Often you will get a note that delivery was attempted and your package is being held for you at the Post Office.

If an order is returned to me because of wrong information, I will be happy to resend it, but you will have to pay any additional shipping cost. PLEASE be sure all addresses and other pertinent information are up-to-date.

Refunds can not be granted due to change of mind. If you have any questions before making a purchase, please convo me and I will happily answer them.

Your item will be shipped within 1 - 4 business days after your payment clears. Delivery Confirmation is included at no extra charge. Insurance may be purchased if you so desire. I ship via USPS.

The physical address on both Etsy and PayPal must match. If they do not, I will contact you to ascertain which address is correct. This is time-consuming and may cause a delay in shipping. Be sure your addresses match and that they are both correct.

All orders will be processed in the order in which they are received.
