I stumbled across this old book store when I visited Eastern Market this week.
The entire store is covered in books from floor to ceiling.
I’m not even a book fan at all but I love when I can find a one-of-a-kind-shop.
This was certainly one of them! The brick side-walk with red Geraniums gave me a welcoming feel. When you walk through the door that musty-book-smell hits you.
The clerk-an elderly woman with glasses perched on the end of her nose- gave me a nod. There was no labeling except for these little post-it notes 🙂 I found two of my favorite childhood books:
Ann of Green Gables and
The Sugar Creek Gang. The clerk hand-wrote all the receipts-it was like I stepped back in time. Stop by and visit if you ever get the chance!
