Announcement    Welcome to Preserve Cottage
At this time we are not shipping daily as has been our usual practice for years. But so far there has been very little delay.

To find specific letters of the alphabet search in the shop search box. It doesn't work well for the letter A. Use AAAA.

International shipping: We are happy to ship anywhere. However, some of our items do not show the international shipping because the calculation of the cost would be so far off. Just let me know what you are interested in and where you are located, and I will get back to you with a shipping quote.

Because each of our treasures has a different weight the combined shipping may be off a little. We are happy to straighten this out. The simplest way we do this is to refund shipping overages over $1.00 to you.

A Passion For Old Treasures

When I was five I inherited my first antique when I got a big double bed from my great-grandparents' estate. It was truly beautiful to me even though the finish was marred and little pieces of wood applique kept falling off.

Together my husband and I have been buying and selling antiques for over 30 years now. We are particularly fond of rescuing letterpress related things. Straight out of college I went to work for a typographic service. My husband grew up in his father's printing business. Our little press, a Kelsey Excelsior, is the first press my Father-in-law purchased as a young man during the Depression.

But we love lots of other lovely things too. So you never know what we might be offering.

    When I am not playing with type, you might find me training with a kettlebell. Letterpress is very, very heavy stuff.
