The Golden Guides, originally Golden Nature Guides, were a series of 160-page, pocket-sized books created by Western Publishing and published under their “Golden Press” line (primarily a children’s book imprint) starting in 1949.

These books were written by experts in their field and illustrated in a simple straightforward style. Intended for primary and secondary school level readers, the first books were field guides illustrated by James Gordon Irving.

We are committed to responsibly sourcing vintage goods and delivering them to you in great condition.

Second hand shopping is sustainable shopping.

Purchasing and Re purposing vintage is a great way to express yourself with unique finds while reducing your carbon foot print.

As an Earth Day Commitment, Blackwell Habitat will no longer sell items such as Palo Santo to reduce deforestation.  BH will also continue to price, research and improve the sustainability of the packaging we use.

In 2019 BH will phase out plastic polymailers and transition away from plastic tapes and new/purchased bubble wrap.
