  • A cute little bookstore with a small but sufficient inventory. There is a yarn section for as my knitters. 
  • 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.
  • I love this place. I have made a stop there every summer for the last three years. Great selection of local interest and southern interest books. A must if you are a reader or someone you love is and you need to get them a vacation gift. Only a short drive from St. George Island.
  • As someone who likes to knit while I read, or vice-versa, Downtown Books & Purl is a perfect match for me! Dale doesn't stock your ordinary superbox store yarn. The back corner of her shop is bursting with skeins in every color, texture and combination you can imagine. Sometimes I just go in to get in a good squeeze! (Yarn Junkies like me will understand) Oh, and she stocks good books and can order anything you don't see.
