Elegant bookstore on Main Street in Durham. Located in a beautiful historic building. They said they have been there for 30 plus years. They primarily have used books, rare and unique previously used postcards and posters from everywhere and about everything. Black and white as well as colorful selections. The book store is arranged so that you should find any genre you may be looking for. The staff is very friendly and will show you around the store. They are very knowledge and will give historical references about Durham and other unique features. A very cozy shop I would recommend checking out this bookstore. Prices seem to be very reasonable as well.

Neat little used book store in Brightleaf Square. The guy who runs it used to Work at Bell Labs. Now he writes books about baseball. How do I know this? Because he's very friendly. Give it a shot! You might find something you like.

I was looking for postcards all day. They are tough to find these days. This place had a wide variety and the employees were very helpful. It was refreshing to be walked to the postcards instead of them just pointing in the direction of where they were. Be sure to go there if u need something they have rather than some chain store. I was greated when I walked in and asked if I needed assistance. At first I said no thanks just looking because I wanted to browse. I was left alone until I had that I need help look and then this wonderful lady walked me to the postcards and told me where she would be if I had any questions and walked away. That type of service doesn't happen much anymore. It was nice to know the customer was more important than the conversation she was engaged in prior to me walking in. Once I stepped inside I became their priority. Kudos the them and the owner for the great staff they have

Yazz the store is warm and cozy you can find great books there the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. In my interaction look for cats to look up my book and let me know that it was a pretty expensive book so they didn't carry it but they could order it. He reminisced with me about the author and thank me for my time absolutely cozy place.

What a terrific bookstore! A vast assortment of antique and collectible books, prints, and maps to choose from. That's not to mention local guides, classic novels, and a host of biographies. Great prices and the friendliest of owners. A Durham gem.

Great little used/rare bookstore with a good collection of ephemera. Employees are friendly and helpful, but not overbearing. Will definitely be returning!
