  • I'm not sure why the other reviewers had such a bad experience, but the selection of books is wonderful (and they're very well classified), the prices are reasonable, the employees are friendly, and the bathrooms are clean (although frankly, I don't go to a bookstore for the bathrooms).
  • 15 minutes before they closed they were booting me out of the store and being very rude. When I was looking at books upstairs and they turned the lights off (knowing I was still up there) 15 minutes before they closed. Wish I could give them less than one star.
  • Wow... Such mixed reviews. I am going today... We will see!
  • Loved this place! It has an eclectic selection of treasures. It was a fun to poke around. There were some good deals. Some of their stuff was overpriced. It's definitely worth a stop.
  • huge place, lots of finds.
