Announcement   Welcome - thanks for stopping in. Is there a more personal gift then an inscription on a special book? Especially if it is a unique vintage or antique book? We don't think so and that is why we have searched far and wide to find the books offered in our shop. Welcome and enjoy your visit.

A wonderful piece of art. It arrived in time for International Pangolin Day, which was much appreciated. It's a small print, but expertly laminated and should last for years.

About

Sharing rare antique and vintage books

Some years ago I decided to find old antique and vintage books that needed a new life in pieces thus began my first etsy shop "Thin Air Creations". What I didn't realize at the time was that there would also be so many wonderful books that I would find that need a home where they will be loved and valued. At some point all of these books began to take over our home and my husband said something needs to change - hence the start of my second shop "Old Books and Such". While I am no expert in antique and vintage books every book in my shop has been thoroughly researched and all available information is shared in the description. As you will see each book is truly a gem looking for just the right home!

    My earliest memory of falling in love with a book was on the first day of kindergarten when my mother took me to the book store to select a book and I chose Black Beauty. I still have the book (a little worse for the years) and I still love books.

Books, and especially old books, are our passion. We sure aren't experts, or even necessarily a book dealer but when we find books that are are sweet, or classic, or fun, or unusual, we think they need to be shared. And share we will. In our shop you will find books that are looking for a new home where they will be loved and cared for. We hope you enjoy browsing and shopping as much as we enjoy finding and sharing these gems.

We try to describe our antique and vintage books as accurately as possible, but please look at all the photos and feel free to request additional ones if needed.
