I think big business is a terrible thing for the spirit of the country, as our spirit is the best thing about us.

Hello,  I am owner and operator, Mark Hamby.  I am very excited about putting my 20 years of business experience and item valuation to work for you.  Starting with and specializing in books, my interest quickly grew into the areas of antiques and collectibles.  My natural passion for books has lent itself kindly in the researching, unlocking the history and unfolding the stories behind the items that we handle.  As an artist myself, I have an eye for detail.  I combine my business experience with my creative nature to best serve you.
