What a great book shop! This is run by the couple who own the place. Anne is the nicest most patient lady! They have a cute little children’s nook, plenty of variety in fiction & nonfiction. They even carry relief maps! One thing that wasn’t book related that absolutely fascinated me was the geological soaps done in your birthstone colors. They smell fantastic too. When strolling around downtown Murphy, stop in here for a pleasant surprise.

Helpful & Friendly Owner
Feb 2019 • Couples
We love books and bookstores, so we had to stop in on our recent trip to Murphy. My husband bought a book, and the shop owner engaged him in conversation about the author and called my husband by name as he said thank you and goodbye. In addition, I purchased a beautiful gold necklace from a local artist/jeweler. We loved the quaint shop, and we plan on stopping by again next time we’re in Murphy. There’s a coffee/ wine bar next door too!

Where or where is my book
Aug 2018
Called and ordered a book to be mailed to my home here in Murphy NC on July 31st. I was going to send it to Portland OR as part of a wedding gift.
As of today's date 8/21/18 we never received the book by mail. I did however go to the Book Shop and they gave me another copy to get ready to mail to OR.
Everytime I called about the book before I went to get another one ,they just seemed a little nonchalant about it, knowing that it was headed to OR.

"Hidden Treasure"

What a gem! I'm a book lover and driving thru Murphy I never expected to find such an adorable book store. It's quaint with a great variety of books and unique items. Kerry is one of the owners and he is so friendly and delightful. He just makes you feel comfortable and engages you in conversation...just a great guy. I found these unique night lights and cards for my girls. I can't wait to come back and spend more time exploring. A must visit if you are in Murphy🌞👍

What a great visit! I love independent booksellers and what they have to offer. Great conversation, great recommendations and a comfortable atmosphere to explore. So good to enjoy the positivity that emanates from this store. Stop in and visit with Kerry and Anne, they really have created a local gem.

Cute gem for those who love a bookstore
Feb 2017 • Family
This bookstore has been in Murphy, North Carolina as long as I recall - one difference, I'm not sure when ownership changes but it did ....a few years at most, and one of the owners is delightful.... Kerry. Good man with a heart of gold.

I love the addition of some of the jewelry and handmade items - e.g. Beautiful scarfs, ponchos, classy unique earrings, and jewelry. It's a nice place to pick up a book by a local area author or a classic.

My only wish, more books! There's a little area that makes up trinkets for children - stuffed animals, educational toys.... IMHO I'd rather see a larger selection of books. There's enough "gift" type items on top of all the bookshelves on their own little racks / pedestals. Would simply love a bit more to peruse in the actual book area!!!

Linda is the owner of this quaint and inviting book & gift store. She is conveniently located beside a coffee shop; I love to buy a good book and sit in the coffee shop next door. She is very informed and can recommend the perfect book for your interests! She also carries jewelry, journals, local memorabilia, awesome maps, and more! I have many mountain gardening, and mountain living books from her store.
