About

NOW THIS IS WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT

HI. my name is gene, and this is my etsy shop. finally, i discovered the ultimate justification for hoarding massive amounts of used, vintage books!

i painstakingly pick out the most amazing, interesting seeming books; my criteria for listing a book in my shop is that i must want to read it, or at least spend a few hours flipping through it and reading random passages. so no crap books.

i love etsy, i love you, and i love books.

    I'm from Boston and I love amazing books. This is the best justification I have ever found for my vintage book-hoarding ways.

I love rescuing vintage and antique books and other items from the edge of oblivion, and returning them to proper use and circulation. For me and my shop, the more obscure and esoteric and strange, the better.

In general, I believe that open and direct communication between people is always the best way to avoid problems, and to solve them easily, so pleeeease message me if you have any issues, concerns or questions!

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express

  • Buy with Apple Pay

Payment
I accept PayPal, direct credit card checkout through Etsy and money orders, but I only accept USPS money orders that are from buyers that are within the United States. I am quite fond of receiving payment within two (2) days of my invoice, and I will regretfully relist an item after four (4) days of non-payment, unless we have worked something out in a conversation.

If paying by way of check or money order, please expect some time for your item to ship, as your item will not be shipping until your check/money order has cleared and I have your payment sitting securely and electronically in my bank account.

I accept cash handed to me if for any reason you are in the San Antonio, Texas area, but please contact me (with a conversation) BEFORE you make a purchase with that in mind, in case I am for some reason not available.

If there's some other weird type of payment you would prefer, do not hesitate to initiate a conversation with me to describe your preferred method of sending me money, but uh, no promises I will accept your alternative payment method.

Items shipped within the State of Texas will be charged an eight point five percent (8.5%) sales tax.
Shipping
All items will be shipped USPS Media Mail or Parcel Post, except for international orders which will be shipped first class. I can do upgrades (or downgrades) within USPS upon request, and may consider other delivery services. Just convo me!

All items or orders with multiple orders totaling more than $25 will be insured through USPS.

Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred as an item wriggles and worms it's way into your country/nation-state.

I will try to ship all items next day, but please allow four (4) days for me to ship your item.
Refunds and Exchanges
Consider your purchase wisely, I will not accept returns for items which you have changed your mind about, or have damaged through misuse. I am not responsible for any damage incurred whilst the item shipped is in transit, so request insurance!

If you have a problem with your item, do not hesitate to contact me! I will do what I can to resolve the issue, and our communication will help me prevent the issue -- whatever it may be -- from happening in the future.

Should a refund be necessary, return it within seven (7) days, to be refunded for the original item price + sales tax, minus initial shipping costs and any damage made to the item. Buyer is responsible for return shipping.
