This is a super cute little shop! I loved all of the small tables with popular books and staff favorites. A lot had little blurbs about why the books were interesting which was a great concept. I don't live in the area but I'll be sure to check it out again when I'm in the area!

A great selection of books, greeting cards, and board games. They also sell coffee and other beverages.

Love this quaint little book store. I got there right after the store had opened. I will admit that it would have been super nice to have had the experience of smelling freshly brewed coffee. I did see that there was the ability to have that on the second floor. It would have been tough to do that with only one person minding the store. I do love a good book store.

Wow! What a gorgeous spot. The upstairs has a beautiful stained glass ceiling. Worth checking out. But most importantly, the books are very reasonably priced and the staff is insanely helpful and friendly. Really enjoyed popping in here to snag a few books as gifts.

The style of this place was amazing. It was quite frankly one of the prettiest and esthetic bookstores I have been in. They had really cool copies of tons of vintage books that were just gorgeous and only 9$. I did find their fiction section to be a little lacking, but I might have just not looked long enough. The upstairs was really cool and the ceiling and doors up there gave old timey glamour vibes. Overall a cool store.
