  • I looked in here in October 2016. Although I have found not what I was looking for, but it is a remarkable book shop. It is well structured with a helpful owner and has an amazing number of books, for example also on topics such as history, poetry, etc.. It's fun to browse here!

  • this bookshop also has an outdoor section as long and about as wide as the shop itself. there are thousands of books out here in the open and I don't think I saw one for more than $10. Inside many mor...  more »
  • On the street with its fashionable shops, suddenly came to the corner like a Jimbo-Cho, overwhelmed by the grandeur of the old brick. People who have seen the book in this space, and bought a book here right now no matter how good has become would would fancy. The intellectual power, I can get.

  • My wife and I love this place for book browsing! Great place to find books of all genres and the staff is very knowledgeable. The shop owner is also featured on the Antique Roadshow as an Antiquarian Literature Appraiser- he always has so many great stories and pieces for sale. We highly recommend stopping in and checking it out.
  • I love books...I think they don't. If there was any rhyme or reason, it escaped me. No one seemed like they wanted to be there. Books seem abandoned on the shelves or floor to fend for themselves. I haunt a great many used book stores and none has depressed and frustrated me as much as this place. Abandon hope...
  • I went there today for an "appraisal" on a book I own. The book is a rare first edition, and retails on Baumans website for thousands of dollars. They took my book and told me they could give me $300 for it. The book is titled "How to trade in stocks" by Jesse Livermore and is very rare. Aside from trying to rip me off the book store was very pleasant, and quaint. It may be a nice place to buy books but you've been warned about selling them to the store. I was hoping for an accurate appraisal not a back room pawn shop offer...
  • This is a two part bookstore with an outdoor bargain section and an indoor 2 floor bookstore with aisles clearly marked and organized. They have everything from childrens to hobbies. Don't expect to find new bookcase books as this is a very used bookstore but you will come across gems.
  • Best book store in the country whether you want more than you can carry for ten bucks or that super rare first edition. Bar none when it comes to history books. Check out this historical book store.
