About

Welcome to our little Michigan Shop located in Old Town, Traverse City

We are a Traverse City based shop with a "brick and click venue" . That means you can visit us at 402 S. Union St., Downtown Traverse City, MI!! Or Shop right from your favorite chair and receive your order gift wrapped.

Nan's love of books and Sara's love of estate sales and antiques gave us the idea in 2012 to start our shop. Together we enjoy combing the countryside of Northern Michigan, searching for beautiful antiques and vintage gems, and historical ephemera.

Since 2012 we've expanded our little shop to include Rohan, our shipping and inventory wizard, Morgan, our data organizer, and Audrey...(loves to iron). Our specialty is antiques and used books. We have a collection of books with content ranging from bizarre medical conditions to fishing in Iowa rivers. If you are looking for a book we don't have in our shop, please feel free to contact us or visit our website, estatesalesoftraverse.com, and we will do our best to help you find it.

And YES, we all read. A LOT.
