Although there were a wide selection of books, I was drawn to all that was NOT books in this store - lots of gift ideas: whimsical erasers, Moleskines, games. more »
Relatively compact and easy to understand layout. I love the staff's handwritten insights and recommendations attached to the bookshelf, inviting you to hold a copy in your hands to explore. I thought I could spend hours on end here had I had the time... Thank goodness for the existence of high quality bookstores!
Our family adores this bookstore. Our children love the attention to detail in the kids section with handwritten book synopsis. I love to get lost reading in their selection. What a special place!
