  • This bookshop is an absolute gem. Firstly, you can find a lot of local authors here. It's great that there is such strong support for up and coming local talent. Secondly, they carry a great variety of books; I almost always find what I'm looking for. Finally, they also have an adorable section of antiques and trinkets. Buying books in person is so much better, so go support a fantastic local business and keep your eyes open for the resident cats.
  • Quaint and cute place with a really great niche variety of books. Worth a visit and more!! Also a great place to pick out a nice gift for a hipster friend.
