Let us know how we can help you find
books for your collection or reference.

The Story Shop has been selling used and rare books
since 1963 and selling on-line since 1995.

Contact us by phone or email if you have a collection you would like to sell. For estate settlements, formal or informal appraisals are available on one book or a large collection.

We can repair books in your collection, touch up your cloth bindings with dye or treat leather bindings that have become brittle and dry. We offer re-sewing, cleaning, hinge repair, tear repair, spine reattachment, regluing of softcover books, and more. We will also place your dustjackets in new, removable mylar sleeves for years of archival protection.

We can come to you in the central Indiana area, or, send them to us for major or minor repairs.
If your book is important to you, it's important to us! Estimates available.
