I really believe in used books, music and many things as a green style of shopping. The guy that runs this is very sincere on cleanliness and decent prices

I always check for used books stores in a new town I am visiting. This one did not disappoint. Great selection of everything. Lots of vinyl and tons of books. A must see!!

We stumbled across this place while attending the farmers market. The owner was very helpful and let us listen to a lot of music before we made our choices. Will be back.

Unfortunately they didn't have any books that I was looking for, but they have a large selection. Very loud music right outside the door. The guy working seemed nice, but he was dealing with another customer so we had no interaction with him.
