The BookShelf - A Place for Used and Vintage Books!


You'll notice we've been downsizing quite a bit. In the last few years, the independent bookselling websites haven't been as popular as they once were, so I'm shutting this down this year. It's been a fun project, it's been nice hunting down hard-to-find books and making a little extra money doing it these past 15 or so years. But, one must look to the future and say goodbye to the past! Thanks to all of you who have bought from us! Many of the books I've not sold are now at:
"Old Things and Objects"
1144 Commercial Street in Astoria, Oregon - specializing in books, vintage toys, art, records, antiques, and more!
Hope to see you there! Otherwise, you're welcome to browse what is still left on the pages here and buy it while it's still available!

Frequently Asked Questions:


Do you ship books out of the U.S.?

Yep, but first let me know what books you're interested in. I'll weigh them and see how much shipping will cost on the USPS website. For payment I will accept only Paypal or International Money Orders - NO foreign checks. Keep in mind that heavy packages are going to be pretty expensive to ship overseas, even using the slowest "economy" method - they keep getting more expensive each year! Example: 2 paperback books to Australia/Europe will cost about US$15.00, 7 books will cost about US$28.00...and anything over 4 pounds can no longer be shipped economy rate.



Looking to see if we have a particular book? Type in the title or author to check! (Put quotation marks around the phrase to make sure it includes the words in the right order: Example: "Half Magic")
