A wonderful book store that has some rare finds. Located in Downtown Mobile. it is small but filled with wonderful books, some rare books, and old collectibles on almost every topic of interest. They also feature books from local Alabama and Mobile authors.

This bookshop is located close to Bienville Square, is not very large but has a good-sized selection of used books, first editions and autographed copies. This store is a nice welcome change to Barney’s. Worth stopping in, if in the area, just to browse.
