NOW OPEN UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP

Hello Painters!
My name is Amber and I am now managing www.decorativepaintingbookstore.com. The entire inventory has been relocated to Largo, Florida, where I operate a small business specializing in the online sale of vintage crafts and books. The site is open and accepting orders again. Your order will be shipped within 1-2 business days of receipt. Please note: there may be discrepancies in the online inventory, and if I am unable to locate an item that you have ordered, I will refund it and ship the items that I can find. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me at [email protected]

Have a blessed day!
Amber

January 2022 update: We are not accepting new orders. Unless you want them all. 🙂 As for previous orders. Please give me a little more time to sort through tracking and cross reference everything if you are still waiting. Life has had some ups and downs. Hoping to get everything sorted out over the weekend.

It has been awhile since have posted. Am going to be putting the website on pause by Feb. 1st Right before covid had planned on hiring someone to take over the online business to move ahead with a retail store. Have been sitting at a desk in front of a computer for 20 years. Literally. Have been doing both because of all the amazing decorative painters! In December many packages were getting stuck in trucks all over the USA. Waited to ship in January. Shipping has resumed however am a little behind and combined with my new venture its too much right now. I need to get ahead of the shipping and rethink how to proceed. Please don't hesitate to message me for direct update. The site will still be able to be browsed but the "add to cart" buttons will be getting disabled. Thank you all for your business and patience while I get life back in balance. Amy

Actually have "News"... Hiring an employee! Have not had one in years. To help with shipping so I can find the time to get the rest of my inventory on the site. As I get older the days of working till 3 am and living off 3 hours of sleep I just can't do anymore. Shipping orders is always priority and I never find the time for much extra.

VOLUME BASED PRICING! Simplified the site taking off all non painting items. Discounts start at 30% and go up. Am bring back limited time deals that change weekly. Have added some book lots with more to come.

BOOK LOTS/WEEKLY DEALS Finally added some lots and weekly deals which will change every Monday. Super great deals!

THANK YOU ....everyone. As I approach 20 YEARS of online selling I will be frank.... at times I just want to "retire" and do something different. Am hoping an employee will take some pressure off and I can find the fun in this again. It is all of the nice people that I have met over the years that keep me going these last five years. Know that no matter how long has passed if you discover a mistake I made I will make it right. Just ask!

Due to the hurricane evacuation we had last week am running a little behind. The rest of the orders should be ready for postage today. I have emailed everyone so check your spam folder if you did not get one. Due to a very angry message am posting this here for all to see. Also a reminder: There is one person running this. Some days I can ship next day. Most the time it takes a few days. And occasionally due to hurricane evacuations, kids and life it will be a 7-14 days. In those cases. When life really gets in the way I do email you to let you know there is a delay. Thank you, Amy

So as I said last month am discontinuing MANY books. Have created a new category for them called GOING, GOING, GONE. They are priced to move with many right now at just $1. The ones priced higher will go down in price as time goes by. Once items get to that $1 category if they go unsold I will put them in box lot or donate.

Why the shift? Been selling painting books since 2001 when my oldest was born. Well that little boy graduates next weekend! Guess I am ready to graduate myself. Am not going out of business. But do want to simplify inventory and free up some space to expand into other crafts. Thank you for your interest! Amy

Decorative Painting - Spring Cleaning 60% off Sale! After so many years of selling online am downsizing my selection to only brand new items. Each month for the next few months the discounts will increase and by end of summer all the used books, magazines and clearance will be sold or off the site to make room for new things.

If anyone is interested in buying used or new books in bulk please message me.

Notice anything different on the site? We updated the navigation so you could narrow your choices and see everything on our site by an artist with one link. Books, patterns and clearance. Working on magazines next. This should help those that are on slower connections and ipads. Also discovered on mobile the price range slider was causing no items to show for some. If you have an opinion please put it below.

OVERSTOCK SALE: After many years moving around for the Army we are now in our "forever home". A year ago we finished moving the business to our property. It has been great as it enables me to ship much quicker! However am am at capacity and have too many books. Please spread word to your fellow painters about our OVERSTOCK sale. Most of them are out of print and I am literally the only place selling them in new condition. Thank you, Amy - Garmy Books

New site is running smoothly! Please know that there is a guest checkout. If you had an account on our old site it did move to the new site. However you will need to reset your password. If having difficulties email me.

Have restocked quite a few titles in the past week. Will be adding some fresh out of print titles and clearance over the next week. Do have many boxes to get through. So it may take me all summer.....
