I love your shop and go each time we are in the area. Your books are a welcome addition to our home.
I love your shop and look forward to my visits when my husband is in town for company training. You are what every book shop should be with tons of organized books of every category, combined with friendly knowledgeable staff. I wish you were closer than a 6 hour drive, I would be there all the time. I hope people realizes what a gem they have in your store being in their community.
I have happily added my latest purchases from you to my home my home library. Thank you.

We hope you will come out and support us at our upcoming Bag of Books Sale! It is being held at the Senior Center.

The Shoppe is almost ready to re-open. We had a little glitch with a needed porch/railing repair. Just as soon as the work is done, we will happily re-open our doors!
