Yes, there are books and magazines for sale in this store, but there is also a lot of other stuff and trinkets especially around the cash counter. Some of the books about local history were interesting.

The owner was very rude to me and my family. She asked us to leave because we were eating the food we purchased in her store. No eating allowed apparently. I had a handful of books to buy but she was so rude we left.

This little nook is a real treat with a nice selection of local books and other odds and ends. Grab a coffee and have some fun puttering around.
