Open by appointment.
We have been booksellers since 1994, specializing in children's literature and picture books, and also folk, early country, and folk revival music. You have reached oldchildrensbooks.com, the children's book website.
Suzanne was a teacher and librarian in independent elementary schools for many years. Truman is a well known Oregon fiddle player. He lists music books at www.biblio.com. https://www.biblio.com/bookstore/truman-price-monmouth. We began our business just in time to experience the traditional bookselling culture, before the internet. We still use the rigid ABAA grading standards of that time, and always pack carefully in cardboard. We live on a small farm in Oregon, with possibly too many books.
We welcome your telephone calls and emails. We can retrieve a book and describe its contents or give you more condition information. We're happy to send additional photos.
We can also make personal lists for you, something we routinely did for many years.
And, finally, we realize that not everyone loves dealing with shopping carts. You can call us with your Paypal or credit card information to place an order. 503 838 5452 (a landline we have had for 40 years!)
Mailing List: We will add you to our mailing list only if you request it. We will then keep a record of the interests you have indicated to us and the books you have purchased. If you want to be removed from our list or change your information, just let us know. We use bulk mailings only to announce major events, like our move to Bibliopolis, and therefore very rarely.
Financial information: We do not save your financial information. If you add to your order you will have to give us the information again. All our credit card charges are eventually handled through Paypal.
