We Buy Books and Postcards


We buy books of all sorts.  We mostly prefer old and rare but we buy widely in modern ones as well:  Antiquarian, Art and Architecture, Decorative Arts, Photography, Americana, Travel and Exploration.  We also buy Science Fiction, Fantasy , and Mystery in original hardcover as well as Vintage Paperback.  We like the Lakeside Classics.  We travel widely buying collections.

Most of our inventory comes rom the homes of book collectors and book lovers.  When you are ready to sell your collection, or when you have the responsibility of selling a relatives’ collection, let Stephens Bookshop fine a good new home for them.

We also buy Vintage Postcards and Vintage Ephemera.  We have over twenty-five thousand postcards – mostly from the early 1900’s to the 1920’s.  We buy postcard topics of all sorts and some postcard views.  We have more American postcards than Foreign but we happily buy postcards from around the world.

Please call us if you have books, ephemera, or postcards to sell.
