Mine was verbose and mostly common sense - but I like it, and now that sellers are not allowed ANY external links, there is one place left to put this. I put it HERE while I was at it. I've been "skwishmi" online since 1996. I did not, and will not, close my accounts or fall off the planet. As of March 2017, Seven Stones Bookshop is CLOSED. I appreciate any interest in my listings, and try respond to questions, comments, or whatever message you care to send, within several hours. Item descriptions are complete and accurate to the full extent of my knowledge.
What the description says is exactly how it is, nothing more or less. Flaws, item origins, and all relevant details are disclosed. Items come from a smoke free home, stored far out of reach of the lovely old library cat whose home it is (Miss Niniel lets me stay here), most on enclosed shelves.
Items which came to me used may have been kept otherwise. It will be noted in the listing if an item is musty or carries even the faintest odor. Service upgrade options are available; please ask before you check out. If you want a time extension, please ask.Quotes happily provided, and you will never be asked to pay more than the quoted price. Let me know when you're done shopping, and I'll send an adjusted invoice. I pack with great care. Please check my customer feedback anywhere that I sell books... I'm fluent only in English, but will try any language at least once, lol. Please contact me for a quote if you like - I'm curious to know how the rates compare, too. The item then belongs to you, so... My goal is to make the process as simple as possible. Your time is valuable, and you'll only be offered what I intend to deliver. I'll accept cash who would send it back? For local pick-up, I only accept cash. I didn't write that bit, that's just how it works, and it never has to happen - TALK to me. Should anything go wrong, please talk to me. It may not be instantaneous, but I will make it right. If you open a case or leave vitriolic feedback instead, well... In my experience, one in 3 or 4 hundred buyers is best written off - please just don't be that guy. If I make a mistake, I pay for it. How much sanity would be saved if everyone kept that policy - right? Simply return the item (preferably in the packaging you received it in), as soon as possible. I'll consider it, if you come with a good story. Book trading was never my day job only because I would starve - I love doing this, but it doesn't pay.
When the Tolkien shop inventory fits in one bookcase (accomplished, 02/17), some of my personal collection will go too. My previously owned books have been furnished with archival quality dust jacket covers when applicable, and extremely well cared for.I hope they all find good homes, and bring joy to generations of readers! Belonged to someone I used to be.
When I had a big house, it could be out of sight and out of mind. In my current home, it's cramping my style.
A lot of it is beautiful, practical, interesting and/or fun, so... It should go where it will be appreciated. Thank you for visiting; I hope I can help you find something you're looking for..
