Hey Vintage Peeps,

This is Pam Fournier, the owner of Reading Vintage.

I scour the kitchens of houses at estate sales for the cookbooks and recipes collections you find in Vintage Cookbooks and Recipecollection.

Then off to go through the bookshelves in the libraries, bedrooms, and sometimes basements of houses to find the exciting books you see in the many collections I have for you to browse.

You can learn about the previous owners of the houses by the books they have. What would people know about you?

Initially, in late 2015 Reading Vintage started online on Etsy; this was eventually successful.  

In the summer of 2018, I gathered my courage, crossed my fingers, and launched my website Reading Vintage. After much trial and error, help from an awesome co-working group, many hours of work later, here we are.

Reading Vintage is still a work in progress. Nothing is ever really done, is it?

I have boxes and boxes of books to sort thru and add to the collections of Reading Vintage. I'm sure you can agree, if you see a great book can you really leave it behind?

If you have any questions, compliments, or concerns, feel free to email me at pam@myreadingvintage.com

Remember, Reading Vintage is not just a bookshop; it is a small collection of stories waiting to be discovered.

Happy Reading,

Pam of Reading Vintage

Yes, Reading Vintage is in the Antique Center in Midland Michigan. We carry a mixture of vintage books and antiques.

Our Process

I find vintage books at estate sale, auctions garage sales, church rummages vintage and antique malls and flea markets. I only choose the highest quality books to offer to you. Our vintage books are sourced within a 150 mile radius.

Our books are meant to be read, admired and enjoyed. 

I realize shopping online for quality books is difficult; you are provided as much knowledge as possible to select your unique book; notes on the condition, record and photograph all the characteristics of each book. You are always welcome to ask for more information via email.

After listing, our books are sealed in plastic for protection, stored in containers in a climate-controlled room.
