This bookstore has a nice bookshop inside, but also a large selection of Christmas ornaments, a HUGE selection of Bethlehem stars (priced from 10.00 to 1500.00), high end chocolates, a kid's candy bar, a sandwich shop, a cafe, a gourmet foods section, a children's bookstore, toys, women's clothes & accessories, housewares, jewelry, Troll beads, candles, some pet supplies, men's accessories ......everything but the kitchen sink. Do not skip this shop. It's also the oldest continously running bookstore in the world. Yes, the whole world!

Great place to visit and browse, they have a variety of items, such as Christmas ornaments, knickknacks and a cafe with pretty decent food. Not your ordinary bookstore.

We were totally surprised at how wonderful this store was! Yes, it was busy, yes, it was crowded... but everything looked wonderful and the way the different sections flowed from one section to another worked well... a feast for the eyes, Christmas decorations, lovely Moravian stars, unusual and lovely gifts, fancy food delicacies, paper goods, baby items... and then... a really well stocked and thoughtful bookstore. So much fun! If you go to Bethlehem or anywhere nearby don't miss this lovely venue! It will remind you of why you hate big box stores!

They sell beautiful objects made by local artisans. Gorgeous Christmas items. Always fun to come here and peruse the shelves.
