Store Description

Books, Historical Documents, and Ephemera -- Burns Bizarre specializes in the eclectic. We try to find items that are unusual and not already all over the net. Most of our stock is rare or out-of-print - dating from the 18th century to the present. We sell in-print books only if they are limited editions, signed by the author or illustrator, or have some other significant associational or historical interest. We do not sell reprint editions, book club editions, or print-on-demand items. We are a family operation -- One of us formerly had a bricks-n-mortar bookstore "Books on Main" in Ventura, California and the other has been selling for many years at book fairs and on Ebay from his base in Sacramento. We are now together in Sacramento CA. The name comes from one our father's enterprises in Chicago during the 1930's -- we are proud to continue his tradition of what is now eighty years of selling things people could easily live without.

Shipping Terms:

Shipping costs are based on an average weight, including packaging, of 2 LB, or 0.9 KG. We usually don't charge extra if you are above that, but If your book is very heavy or special handling is required we may add an extra shipping charge. This usually occurs only for books being shipped via priority mail or internationally; the extra cost for shipping can make the difference in whether we make a profit or take a loss on the sale. We will always contact you first to get your approval for the extra charge. Sometimes shipping doesn't cost as much as we estimate -- if it's a negligible amount we just let it be but if it is substantial, we usually refund the excess shipping. We do not insure our shipments*; if you would like your package insured let us know and we will quote you the extra cost for doing so. (*Domestic items being sent by priority mail are automatically insured by the post office for up to $50.)
