  • This independent bookstore maybe small but it’s full of a large variety of genres. There is also fair trade gift items to pursue. The Owner is very helpful and friendly. Stop in and browse. Enjoy!

  • I love this place. Went here as a kid every summer with my grandparents. In addition to books, they carry fair-trade jewelry and knickknacks.
  • Quaint neat store. Found some local signed Wisconsin authors. Well worth stopping
