I don’t know about you, but I have just accumulated way too much over the years. It’s all great stuff, but I can’t keep it all. Between making, collecting, and admiring over the years, it has gotten out of hand. So I hope to find some of these “treasures” new homes. I hope you find something you love here. All in good shape, and at bargain prices. Listed in no particular order because I hope to ship off, and add often. All sales final. USA shipping only.
Only one copy of each book is available. First come, first served. Some new, some used. I am not putting ORDER buttons on the books because they are going out too fast - customers are buying multiples of books and I only have one copy. If you wish to purchase a book, just email me the title of the book you want and I will mark it Sold, and then I will send you a payment link via return email. I am sorry this is a tad inconvenient, but it is better than thinking you bought a book only to find out someone else got to it first. Most of these books are in New or Like New condition. All sales final. Shipping only in the USA.
