About Our Store


Located on beautiful Cherokee Antique Row and Cherokee-Lemp Historic District in St. Louis MO, Hammonds Books is a family-owned business operating in this same location for over 35 years.  Our online inventory is over 60,000 books, all listed on this site.
We hope you will have the opportunity to come to the store, enjoy our music, and look at the inventory but if not, we are always ready to help you by the telephone or email.
BOOKS: Although we have books for collectors, we also carry books just for reading and old-fashioned enjoyment.  We are an Out-Of-Print Bookstore (or some might say Second-Hand Bookstore) though many of our books are fairly new, just having recently gone out-of-print.  We are experts at finding the rare or scarce books our customers want to own.
POSTERS & PRINTS:  Visitors enjoy seeing our huge collection of posters and prints, very reasonably priced, and on all subjects from fairy tale characters to science fiction to Hollywood film stars.
ARTICLES:  These are listed only online, but they date from the 1850s to the 1950s or 60s.  The inventory includes advertisements - cars, perfume bottles, furniture - as well as articles on the Civil War, World War 2 and a broad range of subjects - even Sparkle Plenty dolls.  We have thousands and thousands and if there is a topic that interests you, let us know.  We might have something exciting for you.
JEWELRY:  This collection is from the well-known Gypsy Ltd in St. Louis - practically every type of vintage costume jewelry produced.

HOURS:  Thurs-Sat  10:30 to 4.  Most Sundays 12-4 but please check with us first.
