WELCOME to my Collectible Vintage and Antique Book Shop~

If you don't see the book you are searching to find, please contact me as I have thousands of books that are not listed and I may have just the book you are looking to purchase~ ;)

PLEASE Read my POLICIES prior to purchasing one of my items. Thank you~

The Book(s) you see in photos will be the book you receive...I take all of my own photos of the books listed, I do not use stock photos~

Please read descriptions carefully, I try to describe my books and their condition to the best of my ability. Since there are only 5 photos I can't always show complete descriptions just from the pictures so I try to describe any flaws or other conditions in the descriptions~

PLEASE NOTE: I try my best to give my customers a satisfactory experience at LadyFransLibrary. If you are dissatisfied with your purchase, PLEASE write to me prior to leaving FEEDBACK so that we can try to work something out. FEEDBACK ratings are vital to online business owners and I really work hard at having a 5 star rating by working with my customers to provide good service. Ratings are designed so that you can leave feedback on my service to you and whether or not the book(s) were as I described. Please remember you are purchasing USED VINTAGE Books and that they will not be perfect, yet I do my best to describe them very carefully. Thank you kindly, in advance.

PLEASE NOTE: All of my books come tied with Antique French Rayon Taffetta Ribbon or handmade vintage ribbon, ready for gifting or shelf display~

Upon request, I do gift wrapping with Vintage Music or Atlas paper, whichever I have in stock at the time of request...I also tie a vintage ribbon around the wrap and will include a note upon request ~

I have collected books for many years and began this shop with the thought of
clearing some of them out! I have a PASSION for books of all types....here you will find books on BIRDS, Wildlife, Classics, American History, Fiction, Old American Tales, European History, Language Books, Nature, and many other interesting books...

I also have several RARE and Antique books included in my listings and continue to post more regularly, so if you love collecting books have a look~

I specialize in antique and collectible JANE AUSTEN Books and have collected them for many years and will soon be listing more of my own collection~

I also think GAME NIGHTS for family are a wonderful way to draw families closer together and I think RETRO games are awesome, so am selling some of them here also!

You will also find some of my handmade vintage image tags,old prints and vintage playing cards....never know what you might find here at Lady Frans Library....

Please "drop in" and browse awhile...Buyers and Browsers are all welcome!
If you have any questions, please contact me and I will be happy to try and answer to the best of my ability!

About

Book Lover to Book Seller

My love of books began when I was a very young girl, my favorite gifts as a child were when I received new editions of Nancy Drew or Trixie Belden (which I still own). I began to collect vintage/antique books many years ago and when I moved a few years ago I realized I needed to sell some of them and so began a lifetime dream of opening my own bookshop~Even though I sold many of them, now my "new" home holds more books than ever before~I absolutely LOVE being surrounded by books and never grow weary of looking through them and picking out the perfect one to list in my shop next~I find that my passion for books has grown greater than ever~I now tell my husband "just kidding" when we moved and I stated I was ready to downsize my book collection.

Welcome to my LadyFransLibrary book store.
If you don't see the book you are looking for, please send me a message, I have thousands of books not posted and I might just happen to have it in stock~
Please read my policies prior to purchasing your items
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I accept PayPal payments only. PayPal is the most convenient and speedy way to receive your item. If you have a question about payment, please contact me.
I also request that I receive your PayPal payment within 48 hours unless you convo me and we discuss something else. If I don't receive payment, I will , unfortunately have to contact ETSY and repost the item..... please pay for what you purchased...THANK YOU KINDLY!

Also, if you purchase an item or items and then request a cancellation prior to shipping, I will have to charge a cancellation fee.

If you have questions about how to use PayPal with a credit card please click the link below:

Shipping
ship mostly USPS. However, sometimes I use UPS.

I always try to ship within 3-5 days of receiving payment. (unless I am out of town which will be noted on top of shop near banner)
If you desire insurance the shipping cost will be extra and you
will need to convo me to let me know so that I can adjust the cost, prior to purchasing please....
Also, if you need the book shipped sooner than my regular shipping, you will be charged an extra $2.00 for shipping on an unscheduled shipping day. Please notify me prior to purchasing the book so that I can add the extra price to the regular shipping cost on the listing. So sorry for this inconvenience, however, I don't live next door to the post office and would have to make an additional "run" than my regular scheduled days.


I ship to the paypal address because I use paypal for my shipping.If you need it shipped elsewhere you must contact me and let me know within the first 24 hours after ordering.

I do ship internationally, however, each place is different so plese convo me if you do not see your country listed and I will let you know a price to where you live and change it accordingly on the ETSY site prior to your purchase so that when you add the item to your cart the proper shipping amount shows up. I ship First Class Internationally and their is NO Tracking. If you desire tracking for an international package you must let me know prior to purchase as it is very expensive and I will need to change the listing price for shipping accordingly. I usually ship my books with tissue wrap, ribbon, plastic bag and bubblewrapped in a large envelope to Europe or Asia as it is so expensive and if I ship in a box it sends the cost up dramatically. So if you want your item in a box, please send me a convo and I will adjust the price of shipping accordingly. I also do not insure my items unless requested by the buyer, because that too sends the price up on shipping.
I also have to ship internationally with no guarantees as things tend to get lost or held up in customs sometimes when shipping overseas and the USPS will not guarantee a package will arrive in another country...so if you desire a shipment internationally and do not desire to get insurance and tracking, I can not promise a refund for a lost shipment. I will e-mail proof that I have sent it though, by e-mailing the receipt and/or customs declaration number from the United States Post Office of the shipment. I cannot be liable for loss of shipped international items.
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final, unless you feel that the book was not as described.

I do my best to describe the items in the description listing on each item and by showing photos. If you desire additional photos, please let me know and I am happy to oblige. If you have any questions or are unclear about an item, please convo so we can discuss it.

PLEASE NOTE: I try my best to give my customers a satisfactory experience at LadyFransLibrary. If you are dissatisfied with your purchase, PLEASE write to me prior to leaving FEEDBACK so that we can try to work something out. FEEDBACK ratings are vital to online business owners and I really work hard at having a 5 star rating by working with my customers to provide good service. Thank you kindly, in advance.

PLEASE NOTE: I am not a professional photographer and the colors are sometimes a little off of my books due to shadows, sunshine, being taken inside, etc. Please carefully read all details, the title and descriptions as I do my very best to accurately represent the books and items I sell. Thank you kindly~
Additional policies and FAQs
Your satisfaction is my goal so please do not hesitate to convo me with any questions or concerns and I will answer as soon as possible.
Thanks again for checking out my site!
