Looking for hard to find Ephemera from the 1950's? Have no idea what Ephemera is? Ok, I couldn't resist. It's rare you see that word - especially in print, promoting a new book store. (for the record - Ephemera is defined as "printed material that is not intended to be retained or preserved).
However, Darren Winston is not your typical book collector - and his new shop in Sharon, Connecticut is not your typical book shop. Having said that, maybe it should be. In this day and age, your first book source (if you still read books and not nooks!) is probably Amazon - or some other internet source. If all book shops were as interesting and chock full of hard to find - finds - you might still have a corner shop in your neighborhood.
Darren Winston has an eclectic eye and a knack for finding hard to find and out of print titles. Looking for a first edition of " a Charlie Brown Christmas" - Winston has it. Curious to see what teenage girls were reading in the 1950'S? Winston has some pristine vintage paperbacks and pamphlets ( Ephemera). There are historical books of all types - from biographies on Political leaders - to local folklore about towns that helped to shape this great country. Of course, all the classics are there as well.
Mr. Winston has developed an extensive network of sources for all types of books since he started his business in 1995. If there is a book you are looking for, chances are Mr. Winston will find it and send it to you, wherever you are.
