The barn is filled with books - all appeared to be of good quality. Jim was so pleasant and full of information. He is a great voice for how wonderful the Machias area is.

This is a nice store. It’s not huge but the guy has a lot of local knowledge and likes to chat it up. It’s worth a stop.

EH! This owner has lotsa GREAT books and Postcards, and what an informative person. He gave us all kinds of travel tips for the area, as well as in to the "COUNTY" and Canada! He generously offered us a ted iced and also lots of information in addition to just traveling the area. He is a former Buckeye, also, and a former teacher.
