What Our Fans Say...


I purchased some lovely medical engravings from Houselore, and the experience was excellent. I would happily purchase from here again.


Houselore is my favorite vintage occult book shop. I worked with Alexandra during the last few weeks of waiting on Royal Mail strikes and she was patient and gracious. I will for sure keep buying from Houselore.

Washington, USA

Alexandra is a wonderful dealer, responding to emails, checking in on the process, ensuring that everything is going as planned. I'll be keeping a close eye on Houselore's new treasures and hope to be buying from Alexandra again.

Yorkshire, England

Ordered two lithographs and they are in great condition, absolutely perfect for who I bought them for.
Fast shipping, super friendly, and very knowledgeable about their products. Can't wait to order more cool stuff!
