Did you know…. Treasure Chest Collectibles has sheet music?

Published on September 4, 2013,

It’s true!  Treasure Chest Collectibles has a very large selection of sheet music, and we have just added over 200 songs this week, with hundreds more to come in the next couple of weeks.  We have modern, vintage, and even some antique music.  Over half is vocal solo “art songs”, but we have many piano books, some solo music for instruments, and many compilation books (e.g. Reader’s Digest books, or hymnals).  These are great for many different reasons:  Many are great collectibles pieces (that could even be used as wall art), they would be great for a unique audition selection, or just a fantastic addition to a music library.  The title vary from the ultra obscure, to famous show tunes, or chart topping hits.  Stop in to check out this wealth of music!!!
