We visit every time we come to Seaside. This is my idea of a perfect bookstore. They have a very wide variety of books--from modern literature to poetry to history to classics, etc. They also have cute little items that aren't books, like postcards, wrapping paper, calendars, book necklaces, little flags, and so forth. I could spend all day here.... More

Remember when book stores sold books? It was so refreshing to step back in time to a real, honest-to-goodness bookstore. It's small, but with a great selection. Staff was friendly and helpful in helping us with our beach reading. Reminds me of Square Books in Oxford, MS, another great bookstore.

My son loves to read so we had to check out Sundog books on our visit to Seaside. Of course, he found many books he wanted to buy. We enjoyed walking around the store. Employees were very nice and helpful too!

I always enjoy stopping in Sun Dog Books when I am in Seaside. This attractive shop has something for everyone and is so attractively merchandised. I miss independently-owned bookstores, which are becoming few and far between. I even miss Borders. So, if you appreciate books, stop in while you are in town.

This bookstore sells all of the latest titles in a very quaint setting. Book lovers will not want to miss browsing the shelves. They also have a good deal of book related gifts.

This quirky bookstore is one of my Seaside favorites. It has a lot of charm and is packed full of books, souvenirs, and gifts for the whole family. They even carry some Lilly Pulitzer items. I make sure to stop in every time I'm in Seaside. LOVE! 💕

Lots of Rifle paper co. & Paper Source calendars, postcards, etc. sticker books, cookbooks galore. We didn't go upstairs because we have a stroller but I super appreciated them throwing in bookmarks for our kids.

We visited this eclectic book/record store while we were in Seaside. Downstairs they have a wide selection of books to browse while upstairs there are records, shirts, guitars, etc to look at. Fun way to spend some time.

Loved this bookstore. Found several gifts and, when I got to the register to pay, they offered to gift wrap for free. Awesome!
