A Can of Spray Paint and a Dream

Bryan and Lori started their first Etsy store and opened a small vintage/re-purpose home décor store in their town of Beavercreek, OH in 2014. After finishing other careers, they decided to try something new.

Lori is the artistic one and knows what colors to put together. She's wonderful at merchandising and knows how to mix old with new to come up with great home décor ideas. Lori is great at turning something old and broken into something really cool for your home (She's just terrible at cleaning up her messes!)

Bryan is the builder, develops the online content, does the heavy lifting and worries about the finances. Bryan has great ideas and is very particular about the budget. (Honestly, he is also quite the horse's rump to work with sometimes.)

They're both on a quest. A quest of searching auctions, estate sales, garage sales, thrift stores and yes, sometimes picking up things at the end someone's driveway. (Don't judge - haha!) They're working hard to find unique, interesting, fabulous, "can't live without it," vintage items for your home. They're also trying to create new ways to repurpose items to make cool home décor.

They're here for you - tirelessly searching, purchasing, cleaning, researching, comparing, pricing, photographing and listing. Why do they do it all??????????

They're not quite sure!

Welcome to This Old Bookstore, a place to find vintage books of all sorts. Whether you are looking for a good book to read as you curl up on the couch or you are looking for some color and style for your home, we've got you covered. Besides obviously to read, books can also serve other purposes. You can use books to add some color to a room or to give a lamp or other items some height on a shelf. Vintage books just make you feel comfortable.

Feel free to browse the store and be sure to check back often. We will be adding new items as we find them.

Thanks for stopping by and pass on a piece of history to another generation.
