  • This is an attractive and well-organized bookstore, housed in a rather small space that was once an apartment rented by William Faulkner. It’s a lovely place, like a bookstore you might find in some quirky but well-made independent film. There are rare, signed (and therefore expensive) editions... as well as more affordable (but just as unique) volumes for sale. The members of the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. I found several interesting books... more than I intended to buy when I entered! I look forward to a return visit.
  • Beautiful historical site. Great poetry collection and set of Faulkner originals, but far too small to include much of a selection of titles.
  • Such a gorgeous shop! Had a lot of fun browsing the selection and picking up some new books.
  • Always a lovely spot to get local author books. The shop is quaint and the lady who runs it is a joy :)
  • Nice bookstore. Too small for my like but not bad. Nicely organize, good and diverse selection. The person in charge was really attentive. A must if you are a book lover.
