I went in to just see what was there and walked away with three books! It's small, but will have something for everyone. The owner is very kind and knowledgeable. Check it out!

This little shop has an amazing collection of books ... classic and new! A visit to this location was the highlight of my visit to Niagara on the Lake. The person in charge was extremely knowledgable and our discussion of Harper Lee was outstanding.

This is a browsing shop. Don't go if you need something specific. But it is a cute place to check out while roaming around town. I did love how most of the books have the plastic wrapping on them like older books use too. And...More
