About NightOwlMemories

Sales 1,817
On Etsy since 2009

An incurable bookworm, specializing in vintage childrens books

I've always loved old books...the smell, the feel, the amazing illustrations. Seriously, today's glued-together books don't hold a candle to a vintage, clothbound hardback with a beautiful embossed cover and sewn binding.

It's no surprise then that I should end up selling them--at least those that I can part with. My house is overflowing with vintage books, most of them which myself or my children have read.

Some of my favorite authors are: Hilda van Stockum, Arthur Ransome (the "Swallows and Amazons" series author), Kenneth Grahame, Mark Twain, and Shirley Jackson. Of course, anything illustrated by Eloise Wilkin is hard to beat too.

I specialize in childrens books and love running across vintage Nancy Drew, Cherry Ames, Hardy Boys, and Tom Swift series books. But really, you will find just about anything vintage here in the way of books. Maybe an occasional antique or collectible too.

My other passion is jewelry. For quality-made sterling, goldfilled, and hand-patinaed jewelry, please visit me here on Etsy at my other shop: www.beadstylin.etsy.com

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Visa Mastercard Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits

Returns & exchanges

See item details for return and exchange eligibility.

Payment

I accept money order, cashier's check, direct check-out, and Paypal. I do not accept stamps, wampum, bushels of farm produce, or baby goats as payment.

Shipping

My shipping costs are very reasonable and are stated on each item. I do combine shipping for .50 per additional item.

I ship internationally and welcome orders from just about anywhere. Will not ship to the moon, any of the planets, the Mother Ship, or Narnia.

If you want insurance, it is additional, so please be sure to specify that you want insurance. Also, if you need delivery confirmation, just let me know. It is an additional cost, but I am happy to add this feature if you wish.

I am a speedy shipper. If you pay via Paypal or direct check-out, your item will be shipped within 1-2 business days; that is, barring pestilence, famine, rising of the creek, or alien abduction.

I like to use recycled materials for my packaging. I do wrap carefully, but know that your box or bubble mailer may have been used before. I believe in doing this to use wisely the gifts we have been given AND also so that I don't have to charge you for shipping materials. This is the frugal German side of me coming out. Save and reuse everything!
