About Us



We are a home-based book business located in the foothills of western North Carolina. We sell a wide variety of used, out-of-print & scarce books by mail-order only on the Internet.

I received an MLS (Master of Library Science) degree in 1975 from SUNY at Albany and have been an independent bookseller since 1978. I worked part-time at a local computer store and began selling online with Interloc in 1994. My wife received an MA in English from Appalachian State University and has been an English teacher at the high school and junior college levels. She is currently completing a nine-novel saga of Mexico, 1870-1920.
