Bev's Books & Collectibles






In my quest to find Nancy Drew books and memorabilia for my private collection, I started picking up other children's books. Thus, spawned BEV'S BOOKS & COLLECTIBLES over 5 years ago. I now have over 5,300 books, games, puzzles, and collectibles. I sell via mail order, at shows, on the internet, and on eBay Auction. To get a listing of items that I have on auction at eBay, first go to . Then under Search, go to By Seller and type in my email address which is . Please note all books are HARDBACK unless otherwise stated (Ex: Paperback; Softsided; Hardboard). I am a tough grader with VG being the highest grade.  Books graded [G] are probably better than you think.
