About Books by Jan

Our business was first established as Stone of Scone Antiques in 1976 in Connecticut. About 10 years later, my husband Tom, who had become intrigued with Samuel Colt and Colt Firearms, became a Federally Licensed Firearms dealer. We sold and appraised antique and collectible firearms, hand loading equipment, and ammunition. We also sold the typical antique items. Eventually we became disenchanted with antiques. Being a book lover most of my life, I decided to add books to our shop. We started with one bookcase and within six months we were putting an addition on the shop - just for the books. Then the books started to overflow into the house and we decided to list our books on-line. Therefore, Books by Jan was born. In October 2000, we closed our shop and relocated to the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina. We purchased a 50-acre mountain and built our semi-retirement log home on the top. We are 2,360' high with a view of the Blue Ridge Parkway, Mt. Jefferson in North Carolina, and Mt. Rogers in Virginia. The does have allowed their fawns to come out of the forests. They romp and run and jump in our backyard. The goldfinches have multiplied this year and eat like there is no tomorrow. Living in the mountains is a pleasure every day.
