How It All Started

There is something special about reading a vintage book 

Something about the paper. The cover. The story itself.


Hello Fellow Book Lover,

If you made it this far into my website, you would agree with that statement. Books are special.

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 Recipe collection.

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

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
