About us and our vintage and antique prints

We have been selling books, pictures, posters and ephemera since 1975. In 2015 we set up Arcadian Prints to sell at local markets and swiftly followed this with a website.  Because we sell on Etsy, we have decided to put all our eggs in one basket and have Etsy host all our stock and we have changed our name to Layoes and Medlars - adapted from a phrase my husband remembers his grandma saying to him when he asked too many questions.

The prints have been hand mounted by us and most of them have been cut to match standard size frames, to reduce the cost of putting them on your wall..

Please note: We do not break good books - we rescue our prints from damaged books and early magazines. Additionally, sometimes we mount posters and other ephemera, to show them off to the best advantage. We guarantee our items to be authentic; wherever possible we give a precise date. "c" denotes an approximate date, within about 10 years.
