  • The best part is the cat. >^..^<
  • Great collection of used books and $.75 postcards.
  • Great comic selection, Owen the cat is very friendly

  • Messy but fun to browse and maybe pick up a cheap book.
  • I'm a huge food nerd so I loved their collection of used cookbooks. Lots of contemporary things which was refreshing to see!
  • Metaphysical and occult like no other! !
  • When you can't get to a green Apple try this even quirkier gem on Church Street. I've preferred them for nine years.
  • Great bargains here at this used bookstore! The best in the city.
  • Great place to find rare books. The cat it's so funny and loves people. Prices are moderately cheap and it's a good place to buy a gift for someone that likes to read.
  • Great selection - the kind of stuff you'd find on the syllabus of a good college course
  • Be sure to pet Owen the cat. He is sooo sweet.
