We are based in Laurencekirk a small town in the Howe o' the Mearns in North East Scotland. 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 to describe each book as accurately as possible and grade our books as follows - Books described as either 'Excellent' and 'Very Good'  are suitable to be given as gifts. Books which are listed as 'Good' or 'Fair' condition will have faults and these will be shown.        
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 Payments and Paypal (there is no need to have 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

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 or with matt finished boards, are supplied with a FREE protective, removable cover.

We offer an unconditional 'Money-back guarantee' on all purchases. If you are not happy neither are we. For a refund just send the book back to us with a short note.

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.
