a book lover is born
from our sparse book shelf in my childhood bungalow came just enough words and pictures to set me on a lifelong path of reading and loving books. beginning with dr. seuss and pd eastman, advancing on to hans christian andersen and the haunting brothers grimm, i was hooked before i set foot in school. but things just got better there - they had an entire library to borrow from and a scholastic book club where i began acquiring my first paperbacks.
years later i discovered used bookshops, estate and garage sales. the hunt, the scent of the pages, the weight of the hardcovers in my hands deepened my pleasure. the stories inside them, the pictures and adventures, were like nourishment. i read, collected, borrowed, loaned and traded books until they filled a room in my apartment; my own personal library. my secret clubhouse.
when i became a toy and bookseller more and more books found a place in my home... in every room, in fact. some are pristine, but most show their age - and all the hands that held them, turned their pages, absorbed their stories. these are my favorites.
i hope they are yours, too.

my idea of a perfect day includes a trip to a used bookshop and a strong cup of coffee, time to read and make things after walking to the post office with your orders.

Additional policies and FAQs
the values of vintage goods in the shop have been carefully researched and compared to similar items available online. condition, materials, age and uniqueness are all considered in this process. cautious cleaning may be conducted where necessary and noted. descriptions are written and photos edited to create the truest and most detailed picture possible. then each item is priced to reflect the best competitive fair market value.
i am not a professional conservator or restorer. as a seller and collector, i opt to leave items in as close to an original found state as possible. my preference for old books with imperfections and indicators of their history and previous owners is evident in my stock. i may dust and gently clean a piece but never remove patina, ink, library labels, or alter what time has added. prices reflect stated condition issues.
polite questions regarding discounts are welcome and will receive a polite response. please do not be offended if a price cannot be cut. occasionally book sets can be separated or an article is reduced in price after several months of listing. please check back frequently - if the item you like is still available, it might be marked down.
clubhouse books is a smoke-free, pet-free environment and an eco-friendly shop. over 95% of all the packing and shipping materials used are clean recycled supplies from local retailers and business offices.
every purchase is truly appreciated! we thank you very much.
