I was in Owen Sound last week and tried to go to the Downtown Bookstore, however it has closed down and is no longer in business. Too bad, it sounded like a neat place.

When we were in Owen Sound we went to the most amazing bookstore / cafe. The Downtown Bookstore (on the main downtown street) had a great selection of books and a very specialized selection of folk, jazz and blues CDs. They also have a little café there and serve outstanding coffee. Definitely one of my favorite places in Owen Sound!
