A little about those who work for 
The Historical Shop

Cary and Margaret Delery


   Since 1978 there has been three words spoken around our house that conjure up memories of catalogue construction marathons & a phone ringing off the hook (no cordless back then) and that has been,  The Historical Shop.  In the twenty plus years Cary & Yvonne have strived to make the Historical Shop what it is today--a successful business that represents honesty and fair business. Now it's time to meet the people that make this business run.  We will be adding more detailed introductions in the future so check back with us to learn more about those involved with the Historical Shop.

     Cary Delery spends a lot of his time since retiring from 33 years of service to Sears heading off to shows across the country in order to procure items that he feels that his customers would be interested in collecting.  Cary also designs and produces the illustrated catalogue.  Some years ago, an article on Cary appeared in the Civil War Courier.  We are in the process of locating and getting permission to reproduce that article on this site.  If anyone has a copy of the article please contact us as we are having trouble locating a copy.

     Margaret Delery has been a very important part of the Historical Shop since her and Cary got married in July 2004. Margaret is the backbone of the company. She has been instrumental in not only keeping the books organized, but has also enabled Cary to spend more time on the floor working with dealers and customers alike. Margaret is also credited for assisting with phone orders, invoicing, packaging, as well as orders taken at shows.

Christopher & Lisa Delery

     Christopher and his wife,  Lisa, are old and new hats to the Historical Shop team.   Both have labored to complete College Degrees in Business Administration (Lisa) and Management Information Systems (Chris) from USL & the University of Memphis.  
     As the current site developers and managers of the Historical Shop website, they look forward in helping you find what you are looking for.  
     If you want to offer a suggestion about the site or if you notice a problem, let them know at:
