  • A quaint little shop with a mix of mostly new and some used. Look closely and you can find some amazing books.  more »
  • Small little gem of a book store. Loved it here. We stopped in while it was raining and enjoyed our time looking at the books old and new and conversing with the owner while we browsed.  more »

  • This is an attractive and well-organized bookstore, housed in a rather small space that was once an apartment rented by William Faulkner. It’s a lovely place, like a bookstore you might find in some quirky but well-made independent film. There are rare, signed (and therefore expensive) editions... as well as more affordable (but just as unique) volumes for sale. The members of the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. I found several interesting books... more than I intended to buy when I entered! I look forward to a return visit.
  • Beautiful historical site. Great poetry collection and set of Faulkner originals, but far too small to include much of a selection of titles.
