Our Open Shop
We have moved! Please note new location
We are an open shop located in northern Vermont near the Canadian border.Our hours are 10am-5:30pm Tuesday to Saturday, Sunday by chance or appointment. We have approximately 35,000 books on a variety of subjects. While we have unusual and rare books, we emphasize books for reading - fiction and non-fiction paperbacks, books on tape, children's paperbacks, etc. We have strong sections in doll and dollhouse books, Vermontania, costume, science fiction and juvenile.

A portion of the book inventory can be found online at the Advanced Book Exchange and Biblio.com. Sales through these sites will have the usual payment options and are subject to the policies of those sites.
