notes from our visitors
Fun, little bookstore. Has a good variety too. Mostly has biographies, nonfiction reads, and YA novels. There's also a cool kids area too.
Best little gem in Winter Park. Super cute store that is set up so well, loveeee the kids section and the occasional story time. If they don't have a book you are looking for, they can order it for you. Great addition to town for locals and visitors.
Great bookstore with an amazing selection. Miriam is the best! She's put books aside for me and is always up for a book chat.
Great little book store with more than books, many cute curiosities. The atmosphere is very cozy and the owner is very nice. There is delicious hot coffee too!
I have twins and they are eight years old and we found the two cutest books. The author was Jana Vandelaar. They are the best two little children’s books. My kids want me to read them over and over.
Cozy and cheerful independent bookstore with a fabulous collection of books. The owner is super knowledgeable and happy to help you find a book or gift you love. Funny stickers! Trail maps! Children's section is wonderful! Check it out!
Talked to the owner who mentioned they had only been open 2 months. WOW. Lovely space, well appointed, excellent selection of and superb taste in books. Journals, candles, and knick knacks that you’d actually want to buy. Wish we could have spent more time here—a hidden gem!
Surprisingly broad, well-curated collection of books in a limited space. Enjoyed chatting with the owner. Didn’t get a chance to try the coffee or scones.
Great taste in books and a fantastic store.
What a fantastic store! Winter Park is so lucky to have a local bookstore with such a friendly and caring owner.
