Specialities: Rosebud’s is really more of a general inventory built by serendipity, but we’ll always have some: • First edition fiction including literary, mystery, and sci fi • Americana, especially Civil War and Native Americans • Books about books • Books about collectibles • Popular music, especially jazz, blues, country, and early rock • Popular culture, especially comix and movies • Humor and anything incredibly strange • Illustrators, especially pre-1960 children’s books • Hunting and fishing
Description: “Rosebud” is the first word spoken in Orson Welles’s film, Citizen Kane, and the movie closes with an image of a rosebud on a child’s sled. In between, the entire film is interviews with characters who knew Kane by a reporter trying to find what “rosebud” meant and why Kane would utter that word on his deathbed. “Rosebud,” in the movie, becomes a term synonymous with something greatly desired. I want to help you find your “ROSEBUD!” My aim is to offer items that are as worthy of the quest as “rosebud” was in the greatest film or all time. By collectible, I mean “rare,” “desirable,” and in “excellent condition.” “Carefully selected” would be another apt descriptor for the types of items I try to stock. Rosebud Collectible Books and Music is an online-only store that I’ve run from my home on a part-time basis since January 2011. I’ve been a collector, though, since the 1990’s, and an online book-buyer, since the earliest days of the internet, so I know the frustration of badly described books and poor customer service. I work to be a seller that provides accurately-described, collectible items at a competitive price with excellent customer service. I want to be the kind of bookseller that I’ve always enjoyed buying from.
