    Love this bookstore!!! Found The Lion's Paw which I have been looking for! And Wallace was so helpful to me and my kindergartener - we will definitely be back!

    Cute little bookstore nestled in town. Has a good number of books of Florida and a number of best sellers. The back of the store was my favorite. I finished a knitting project and needed a new one. The yarn was great however there wasn't a lot of it but good prices. There are also a small collection of needles and notions - enough for me. Perfect for my favorite town in the Forgotten Coast.

    Small independent bookstore with very good selections, esp. local and Florida history. Friendly people.

    Not huge, but quaint. This little slightly topsy place is great for beach and FL books as souvenirs and gifts, and the yarn section is cozy and had fun beachy options to bring back. The is a house cat that comes and goes, I imagine he would make a great character in a book.

    What a nice find and practical. Dale was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. My partner has relatives living in the area. I bought several skeins of yarn to keep me happy while there and on the way home. Wish I had her store in Houston TX.
