About Us

Sandra L. Hoekstra Bookseller is a business owned by Sandra L. Hoekstra located in mid-coast Maine on Route 1 in Thomaston. We specialize in antiquarian, collectible, out-of-print and rare books, maps, prints and interesting ephemera in a variety of topics. We have been selling at book shows, antique shows, and online since 2002.  We are members of the ABAA (Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America), ILAB (International League of Antiquarian Booksellers), and IOBA (Independent Online Booksellers' Association).  

Our interest began with illustrated children’s books, this has developed into a larger range of subjects, many beautifully illustrated. Our love of illustration has led us into a broad interest in printing methods, a love of old maps, hand-colored, and chromolithographic prints, etchings and engravings.

We sell in our open shop, by internet, and at book and map fairs. Our shop hours change with the seasons, please call or email ahead for hours or for an appointment.
