Amazing locally owned bookstore! Huge selection of different genres and exceptionally large vinyl collection. Located in what appears to be a repurposed warehouse in fed hill with plenty of street parking around. Has a huge museum-like back room with creepy fun little displays. Very quirky and fun hidden gem
What a cool spot! Locally owned small business, so automatic cool points awarded. This place is vast, with countless Vinyl, CDs, Books, Video Games, and just a ton of other random stuff. The location is a little awkward... Tucked in with a bunch of homes and churches, but don't let that dissuade you. I point that out because this firmly falls in the "hidden gem" category. There is ample parking and it's easy to get to. Matt, the owner, really did a solid job building this into what it is. Highly recommend you stop by and check it out!
I missed my turn while leaving Fed Hill and ended up driving by, and extremely happy that I did. Great store and selection! They really don't make 'em like this anymore. Nostalgic and reasonably priced.
This place is perfect for anyone looking for a great selection of exceptionally reasonably priced used books, movies, vinyl, and an eclectic array of oddity items and pop memorabilia. A must for anyone looking for a unique book, hard to find vinyl, or gift. DO go to this shop. The owners are very sweet and friendly.
Cool atmosphere, books, cds, records, comics, clothes, posters, etc. Most of the books if not all are used and prices are about 30% or more off cover price. Will come back with the family.
