  • 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.
  • 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.
