It has books, real books. It’s very unusual to have bookstores these days ( my wife and I read tons of books on Kindle ) and it was a great experience to walk in, pick up the books and read the jackets. Nice, old style...More

I don’t really buy paperback books, since I use a Kindle, BUT this was a really fun place to visit. It was a bit cramped, but since it’s one of the most popular attractions in Seaside, we expected that. Aside from books, they sold greeting...More

The town of Seaside is beautiful, but our favorite part of the trip was this hidden gem and the upstairs record store. My kids could not get over that there was a whole store dedicated to selling CDs and Records 🤣 A must visit!
