About

Specializing in Quality Used and Out-of-Print Books Since the Twentieth Century

Welcome to Fantod Manor Books & Ephemera. Here we offer quality used arts and crafts books, clothing and craft patterns, posters, prints, and ephemera.

We have over 16 years' experience selling books and ephemera online and in a brick-and-mortar storefront. We take the time to carefully evaluate and describe everything in our shop. We understand you can't hold anything in your hand when shopping online and want as much information as possible about what you're considering for purchase.

Since everything we sell in this shop is used, any price notations remaining on the items are NOT the amount we are asking for them. Also, please understand that used items will have evidence of wear. We’ve made every effort to clearly and accurately describe the condition of the items in this shop.

We cannot reasonably be held responsible for the contents/quality of instructions in any of the instructions/information we sell.

Ours is a smoke-free home and our inventory is stored in a cool, dry place. While we do have a little goober dog named Henry, he doesn't spend his doggy time around our merchandise. You need not worry about his having shed upon, played with, or snorfled in any of it. However, if you're a fellow pet owner, you know how impossible it is to prevent the occasional stray pet hair from making its way onto things it shouldn't. We apologize in advance if this happens.

Please visit Tess' Etsy shop, Tess Creates at TessCreates.etsy.com, for her pretty handcrafted ornaments, jewelry, bookmarks, and accessories, plus fabric, craft supplies and kits, and vintage treasures.

Thanks so much for visiting!

    I started crafting vicariously at a very young age while watching my Granny crocheting. Now, I'm often exploring and experimenting with different crafts when I'm not wandering thrift shops for treasures to sell here. I'm happiest when creating.

    Together with my wife, Tess, we've been operating Fantod Manor Books online since 1999. She runs both this and her own Etsy shop while I work in a nearby city. I enjoy golf, chess, Scrabble, and playing with our little goober dog, Henry.

Frequently asked questions

You have a great variety of books and prints! How can I easily find what I'm interested in?

Our inventory is categorized as shown in the Sections list on the left hand side of the screen; just click on the individual section you're interested in exploring. If you choose to scroll our whole shop, you'll see that books are in alphabetical order by title as their section appears. Unfortunately, Etsy does not provide a method for sellers to arrange their inventory within individual sections. If you choose to explore our shop that way, we regret our inventory will not be in any tidy sequence within individual sections.

Do you provide combined shipping?

We're happy to do so! Please contact us BEFORE you place your order so we can provide you with a custom listing of all the items you want and their combined shipping cost. We feel it's fair that it's the customer's responsibility to read and understand all of our Shop Policies before placing an order. Therefore, we will neither provide combined shipping after an order is placed, nor will we refund any shipping cost overpayment.

Do you charge a handling fee?

Nope! And we don't add our Etsy sellers' fees to our inventory list prices. We utilize Stamps.com for our mailing labels which provides us discounts on some shipping methods. We pass those discounts on to our customers. We use recycled, clean plastic bags, bubble wrap, foam sheeting, cardboard, and/or paper for shipment wrapping whenever possible. Sometimes these will have evidence of prior use. While some folks find pretty packaging important, we feel it's more important to use recycled/recylable materials; thus we do not pass the cost of packaging on to our customers.

Do you offer shipment methods other than what are stated in your listings?

We're happy to do so! Please understand we ship ONLY via the United States Postal System (USPS). You may choose whatever USPS shipment method you wish. Since we utilize Stamps.com for our mailing labels, they may offer a discount on the USPS shipping method you choose; that discount will be passed along to you.

Please contact us BEFORE you place your order so we can provide you with a custom listing of the item(s) you want and the cost of the special shipping method you request. We cannot provide special shipping requests after an order is placed.

Do you offer shipping insurance?

Yes! We utilize Stamps.com for our mailing labels and they have their own version of USPS insurance, which we will utilize.

It's important for you to understand that some USPS shipment methods include insurance to a certain dollar amount limit in their cost. In addition, not all USPS shipment methods allow insurance to be included.

Please contact us BEFORE you place your order so we can provide you with a custom listing of the item(s) you want and the cost of insurance. We cannot provide insurance requests after an order is placed.

What's the difference between Processing time vs. Shipping Time?

For FANTOD MANOR BOOKS & EPHEMERA no processing times are stated in individual listings as Etsy says! We'll PROCESS your order within 3 business days of receiving it. This means wrapping your order for shipment, sending you an Etsy shipping notification which will include the date the USPS will ship it, and the USPS Delivery Confirmation number OR USA Customs form number on your package. Estimated SHIPPING times, listed above, means the time it takes your package to go from here in Oregon USA to you. Business days are weekdays (Monday through Friday) and do not include weekends (Saturday and Sunday) nor USA holidays (which often fall on weekdays) when the Post Office is closed.

How do you determine your shipping costs?

The United States Postal Service (USPS)...not us...sets our basic shipping costs based upon package weight and size. We utilize Stamps.com for our mailing labels which provides us discounts on some shipping methods. We pass those discounts on to our customers. At this time we do not utilize Etsy's shipping matrix. USPS postage rates were changed on April 10, 2016 and our shipping costs reflect that.

Will my package have USPS Delivery Confirmation?

It certainly will, within the USA, to Puerto Rico, and all APO and FPO addresses. For shipments outside of the USA, the USA Customs form will have an identifying number. SOME countries have an agreement with the USPS to track that number and consider it a type of delivery confirmation number. We cannot and will not guarantee that any given country will have this agreement with the USPS. If you require package tracking other than USPS Delivery Confirmation, please contact us BEFORE you place your order so we can provide you with a custom listing of the item(s) you want and the cost of package tracking. We cannot provide package tracking requests after an order is placed.

More About Return Shipping Costs

While we do accept returns under certain conditions (please see ETSY'S rules, above), if you wish to cancel an order which has already shipped, or return an item because you don't like it or don't need it, we will only refund you the list price but not the shipping charge made at the time of sale. In these cases, we will not reimburse you for return shipping costs. For orders already shipped which you wish to cancel, simply write on the UNOPENED package "RETURN TO SENDER" and place it back in the mail.
