We went to numerous book stores while visiting Asheville, bought from all of them except Malaprops (pretentious). All 4 members of my family found books we didn't have and walked out with $200 in books. I really appreciate the way it was set up and...More

Staff is kind, genuine and honest. Took in inherited book collection and received a generous amount of trade. We were able to get newer books for our son and ourselves.

This is the place to go for well-organized used books. The staff is actually super friendly too (which is weirdly not always the case in used book stores). Anyway, I almost always find what I'm looking for here. I never leave empty handed. An oasis...More
