Besides their great book selection they also have lots of cool kitschy stuff. Book stores are a dying bread but Antigone gives us hope. If you are into books and generally cool stuff need to check it out if never have

Wandered into this bookstore and spent a great amount of time there. Besides books, the store has great stationery, games, and all types of items that would make great gifts for people of any age. Store is 100% powered by solar energy.

A great gem of a local bookstore laden with books, gifts, souvenirs, etc., etc. The collection of bumper stickers is vast and laden with belly-laughs, especially at those with anti-human hangups. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. Great fun!
