We are Salem's Indie bookstore, located on the Pedestrian Mall, across from CVS.

We stock both new and used books, and locally made gift items, such as candles and soaps. Used books are always 50% off (except for our collection of rare / collectible titles), and usually have dollar book tables and $5.00 hardcover tables.

We also special-order books for our customers, and can get almost anything, including textbooks.
