Wolverhampton’s Very Own Cornucopia of Nostalgic Artefacts

Owner David Wilsdon started Wolverhampton Books and Collectables some 12 years back originally on a stall in the towns old Antiques Market. He originally collected books / antiquities / loose paper items etc, and then decided to start dealing in them himself.

His collection grew and then started to branch off in quite a few directions that now includes Postcards / Memorial Cards, Military Items and Medals, Sporting and Music Memorabilia, TV & Film related items, Cigarette / Tea & Gum cards, Toys, Old Photographs / CDVs, Scrapbooks / Autographs, Stereoscopy / Magic Lanterns & Slides, Misc Ephemera, Advertising and much more.

3 years ago, David moved Wolverhampton Books & Collectables into a wonderful old timber building in Wolverhampton city centre. Known as Lindy Lou’s (and also The Copper Kettle by some) it is a building that dates back to the 1300’s and is one of the towns best known buildings and suits the personality of the shop a treat. Find out more about the buildings history.

  5. I went here earlier today and purchased a few badges and a Smiths book. The building’s beautiful architecture is complimented by the wonderful books and collectables that are inside.
    I may just spend my entire student grant in there if I’m not careful!
    It’s a great place.

  6. Dear David,
    I have quite a few books left to us by my late father-in-law. Mainly old historical and interesting themes. there are about 50 to 75 in all so I need someone to come and have a look. If that is something you do and you would be interested, perhaps you would email me or phone [07980767152] to arrange a visit. We live in Sandy Lane Codsall.
    Regards Neil.

    • Hi Neil – you need to contact David direct via the details at the top of this page.
