  • 5 floors of vintage, rare, and wonderful books! They have books on just about any subject you can think of. We were greeted by a friendly cat named Bingo and the lady that rung us up was so sweet. Will definitely be going back, it's totally worth the hour and a half drive it takes me to get there!
  • A literary treasure hunt in a 200-year old barn (or something like that). You can have great fun getting lost wandering around this place.
  • I went here looking to kill time and browse some books. What a unique place to find used books and possibly some funny books as well! The variety here is really wonderful and the actual building is beautiful. Come here if you want to have fun browsing books and maybe to purchase some gems!
  • Massive qualities of old books arranged by topic on Five levels of an old barn. What's not to like?
  • Such a cozy place to sit and read. Get lost here!
