Vamp & Tramp
Vamp & Tramp, Booksellers, LLC is a dealer in small press and artist-made books located in the South Hall Building at 1951 Hoover Court, off Montgomery Highway in Hoover. The owners are Bill and Vicky Stewart.
The business was founded in 1995 as a contemporary seller of first editions. The name was inspired by their pet dog and cat. In 1999 Vamp & Tramp opened a retail location at Pepper Place that sold fine antiquarian books, modern first editions, local history, children's books, artwork and various paper goods and gifts.
In December 2003 the company acquired the well-established San Francisco gallery Califia Books from Edwina Leggett and closed their shop to focus on serving their combined client list. They currently sell by catalog, over the internet, at major book fairs, and by private appointment. The Stewarts are known for filling their minivan with books and making annual rounds of their institutional and other important clients.
