Special Bookstore

Remember when a bookstore was a bookstore? Sun dog takes you back to the real bookstore era. Fun to browse and a very knowledgable staff. I always drop by when I am in town.

If you want a real bookstore, where you know the people in the store really love books, this is the place! One of the best bookstores in Florida if not the country.

Wonderful book store located in down town Seaside. A great selection of books, postcards and little odds and ends. Employees were so kind and knowledgeable about the area and things to do. Recommend stopping by if your in the area.

This is what a bookstore should look like. Filled to the brim with great books, interesting cards, and other gift items. You could literally spend an afternoon there looking through all the different genres. I will definitely return.

Charming book store! Plenty of books to look through downstairs. Upstairs has music and t-shirts. Fun place to stop in, cool off, and grab a book for reading on the beach!
