The Store

The store started in one small room and has grown to include four rooms of an 1820's mansion located uptown, two blocks from City Market. Watch for our unique curved front door with leaded glass.

The Stock

We specialize in antiquarian and rare hardcovers, primarily non-fiction. We have an extensive art book collection, and many religion titles. Our biography section is very popular. We carry a broad range of history books, including several of local interest. Handy people will appreciate our technical section which covers everything from automotive to woodworking. Children and adults alike will enjoy our children's section which covers 1860 through 1970.

The Staff
