  • My favorite bookstore! A well-curated collection of reading material, thoughtfully presented. I always find a new "must read". They also have an amazing selection of magazines, cards, gifts and home accessories, I picked up some tea towels on my last visit! They are in the process of adding a wine bar - Vroman's keeps getting better.
  • I can't say enough about this amazing store. If you go in you will not want to come out. They have the most amazing selection of books as well as lots of luxury home decor and luxury personal items.They even have stationary greeting cards decorative napkins etc. The children's book section is absolutely amazing and beautiful. They have lectures and even have a coffee shop. You couldn't ask for anything more! We drive 50 minutes just to go to this place and make a day out of it.
