Pretty Old Books is a vintage book shop like no other, offering a wide variety of vintage and out-of-print books on every topic along with decorative book sets in a rainbow of hues. My mission is to offer an entertaining and transparent book discovery process that invites you to join in a fun community of book lovers around the world while finding must-have treasures to add to your home library. 

How It Works

I do this through the use of social media, including Instagram and YouTube. Each week brings you interactive book hauls, previews, and sales where you can see real-time video and photos of my latest and greatest vintage book finds. Things move fast at Pretty Old Books, and you never know from week-to-week what you may find. I have frequent sales through the email list that you do not want to miss!

Decorative Books

I offer a carefully curated selection of curated vintage book sets for home and event decor. My book sets have been used by celebrities, movie and tv studio prop departments, Airbnb owners, wedding planners, home stagers, and hundreds of individual home decorators around the world. I have also been featured in Flea Market Decor magazine. 

Collectible Vintage, Out-Of Print, and Antique  Books

I also host a newsletter for vintage book lovers that features all kinds of interesting books I've found for sale all around the internet called Book Hunt. 

Meet the Founder

Pretty Old Books was founded in 2018 by me, Jess Dollar, and continues to be run as a home-based, virtual book shop from my home base of Athens, Alabama. I am an avid reader of non-fiction and love thinking of new ways to make Pretty Old Books the most unique and engaging book shop on the planet.
