Fred C. Hays Sr. (my great grand father) said, "Buy what you like." So we did. He was a collector and art dealer. His son and grandson and great grandchildren were compelled to follow in his footsteps. So we, Charlotte and Elliott, Fred C. Hays III and Chana Hays buy beautiful and curious things to sell to you at our family shop: Charlotte Elliott and the Bookstore Next Door is a family owned and operated antique shop with a book shop next door. We sell a wide array of ancient, antique, vintage and curious items that appeal to our collective appreciations of history and art. Asian and African artifacts fill the shelves along side Mid to late 20th Century vintage clothing. Herend Porcelain and Imari Pottery are collected along with cut crystal stem ware as well as continental dinner sets and Inuit art fill every corner of three levels of our shop.
We also sell books on a grand collection of topics from History to Science, Math to Astrophysics, Physics to Fiction. First Editions and blank journals, sheet music and vintage CDs fill the shelves on two more levels.
We are located in the historic neighborhood of Hampden in Baltimore, Maryland. Come visit us at 835 and 837 W. 36th Street
