Hi! I am Terry Stillman and I closed my retail storefront
bookstore at 1321 Kingsway, Vancouver, B.C. in June, 2002. In all, I have
been buying and selling books for over forty years. Children's
& Illustrated Books has been a constant specialty. To that I have
added Aviation as a second specialty, concentrating on titles
dealing with WWII, but also carrying some Pioneer and WWI material,
including some technical books. Due to a conversion in Fall, 1999
from a General Bookstore to a Specialty Bookstore I now carry
many fewer types of books. Currently, besides Children's and
Aviation books, I also have representative sections of Art Books,
Military, Naval, Espionage, History, some Fishing, Golf, and
The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. See the list below. You will find some
illustrated catalogues of books for sale on this website.
I took over the Jolly Olde Bookstore in December, 2010 and
closed it on July 17th, 2016 to reopen in White Rock, B.C.
See above for details.
