They like us! They really like us!

In October we entered a bookseller window display contest for the young reader series, Wildwood and Under Wildwood by Colin Meloy.

Though we weren't the Grand Prize winners (that prize goes to Porter Square Books in Cambridge, MA), we WERE runners up!

A nice feather in our caps, I'd say.

Rare Finds: A 250 year old book

We think books that are over 250 years old are pretty cool! 
The Eighth Edition Corrected and Enlarged edition of 
The Present State of Great Britain and Ireland in Three Parts with a 
frontis of George !! from 1738 ($350.00), open in the foreground, is just
one of the many rare and antiquarian books you'll find in our balcony 

Enjoy the look and feel of old books?  Visit us today and take a stroll
