They have a nice selection of ornaments, Byers Choice, Moravian Stars, all kinds of neat gifts for you or to give. I go there to buy my Radko ornaments and you can find some different items for all the different holidays not just Christmas. The restaurant they have in the book shop though is just hum drum, I would suggest going to eat someplace else. Many years ago the restaurant was really good and there was a big variety to choose from but the selection is poor and not that great.

So much more than a book shop! Beautiful, often distinctive gifts as well as a varied array of books particularly on the city of Bethlehem. Wonderful candies and foods to be purchased too. Don't miss this gem of a shop whenever visiting Bethlehem, PA.

This Bookshop was been in business since 1745. It's a great place to shop. If they don't have the book your looking for, they can get it in 2 days.

It is refreshing to find a shop that actually has and interesting and different selection. I hate shopping, but it was a pleasure for everyone to spend some time here. I finally was able to get the Moravian star that we have wanted for years, but the store has many non-Xmas items. Stop by and enjoy!

TIP: they offer a variety of free snacks to taste - very helpful in distracting children to extend your visit
