THE ARRAN ALEXANDER COLLECTION
For Vintage Ladybird Books
We are one of the largest independent retailers of Vintage Ladybird Books in the UK.
Based in Scotland, we supply the wonderful books from the Arran Alexander Collection to customers around the world.
We are an on-line bookshop and we specialise in Ladybird Books. We are based in a small town in the Howe o' the Mearns called Laurencekirk. It is once famous for the production of snuffboxes with a special type of airtight hinge (known as a "Laurencekirk hinge").
We currently have over 5000 books in stock. Each photograph on this site is of the actual book being offered for sale, and each is described individually.
We try and describe each book as accurately as possible and grade our books as either Excellent, Very good, Good or Fair.
Orders may be made on-line through our checkout system. Alternatively you can make your order by e-mail.
We accept payment by several methods. Amazon Checkout and Paypal (no need for an account) are secure payment gateways which enable you to make secure payments with a debit or credit card. We will never see your payment details. We are simply notified when the payment is completed. We can also accept payment by direct bank transfer, cheque or by Postal Order.
Opening hours are 10.00 am until 6.00 pm daily. For our contact details click here.
We take great care with all of our packaging. We want to ensure that you receive your books in the same condition as they leave us. All of our vintage Ladybird books with dust-covers, are supplied with a FREE protective, removable plastic covering.
We offer an unconditional Money-back guarantee on all purchases. If you are not happy neither are we.
We aim to dispatch your books within 48 hours of your order and we will keep you informed at every step of the way. In the unlikely event that there is a problem, we will inform you immediately.
