Store Description

Old Bag Lady Books opened originally in downtown Holland, MI. We moved the inventory to FL in 1998 and are now in Sun City Center, FL (near Tampa). We sell on-line, by appointment and the occasional book fair (The St. Petersburg, FL being the primary show we do). We focus on out-of-print non-fiction, especially African American studies. We like illustrated juvenile books and, of course Florida related fiction and history. Because we started by needing to appeal to all of the reading public with an open shop, we still carry military history, guns & hunting books, ethnic fiction and technical books - we meet a broad range of interests. Our name represents our philosophy - take the books seriously but have a good time doing it.
