Golden Fig Books is absolutely charming. The staff was very friendly, and obviously loves to talk about books. They also do a great job of curating their stock. Even though it's a small space, I found a lot of recent and classic books to take home with me. My only regret is that I live too far away to make regular visits practical.

Has an amazing selection of used books that I would never even expect to find at a used book store, including newer releases that are widely popular and award winning. Also has friendly staff.

Couldn’t find the books I wanted anywhere. They helped me figure out why and worked with me to find a way to get them. Very friendly staff and quick turn around time.

Golden fig has a wide selection of used books I can’t find anywhere else! Most are very gently used and there are plenty of recent releases. You even can get 10% off your entire order by buying a newer book!

I’m visiting my sister from out of town and stumbled across this gem of a bookstore! What a great curated selection of books in all genres. It is so clean and cute throughout the store and the window seats were simply adorable. I am fortunate to have an indie bookstore in my home city and love seeing what other cities have to offer as well! Thanks for a great visit!

Love this place. It's small but every single book there, from 18th century horror to modern avant-garde cookbook is great. Prices are suspiciously low, but none of the 20+ books I've bought there has had the tiniest flaw.
