I did a little poking, and it looks like (fairly recently?) all of their contact info changed from New York to California addresses and phone numbers, etc. Could be a hijack, or a change in management, or...?

According to wayback machine, their website changed from showing a New York address to an LA address sometime between May 12th and October 3rd 2016.

So if the address change is as the result of hacking, it certainly isn't recent.

ILAB shows their membership still at the NYC address. Their phone number has changed at least once since they have been recorded as in LA. Prior to the current one (changed sometime prior to March this year, but after September last year), it was 212-582-2505, but at the same address.

Email address changed from info@haydenandfandettararebooks.com to info@haydenandfandetta.com sometime between May 2016 and Oct 2017.

All a bit odd.

Abebooks seems to have removed all their listings.

I just heard back from the dealers at Hayden and Fandetta, and it appears from their explanation that it was a glitch on Abe.com's part when making changes to their database. It removed over half of their listings and all photos it appears, and included about 50 of my listings without any photos. So they have purged their database and are restoring it today. So at some point their listings should be back up again, and they hope all their photos are restored, so they don't have to upload all of those again. I wanted to thank Trotter for letting me know, plus finding out that ABAA members haven't resorted to copying listings yet. I also understand from speaking with the ABAA that one of the former owners has retired recently, so that may explain the different address's and phone numbers that added to the initial confusion.

Is it my imagination or is eBay slowly dying as a decent viable market for books?

Not your imagination, I don't think. I now have so many filters on my searches to weed out the crap, it is ridiculous.
