About us


We are a family-owned bookstore and this is our very first book store.  We launched our business earlier this year in response to a need for avbookstore in our area.  We are thankful to the support of our community and hope to grow with all our visitors and patrons in the coming years.

We specialize in the best new releases.  We have a great selection of new books and some old favorites too.  We have the largest selection of books about Philadelphia anywhere, including guidebooks, local history and art books.  We have a great selection of children’s books too!.  There is something for everyone.  

Our staff is small and we may be a new store but we are knowlegeble and passionate about books.  We love to read!  We hope you will come in and share your love of reading with us.  Welcome to our store and to our family.

A few words about ordering from our site.

If you see that we will ship within 1-5 days, it means our distributor has copies and we can send it out to you within that time frame. It's also possible that we have the book in stock. We'll send an email to let you know the status of your order once we've checked our shelves. Our inventory moves in and out quickly and is not tied in to our website. Also, in checkout, you have the option to order online and pick up and pay for your order at the store.

If you see that a book is a special order and subject to availability, it means just that. Sometimes we need to call the publisher to find out if a title is truly available. If you try to order a subject to availability title on Friday we probably won't have an answer for you until Monday or Tuesday. Please be patient, we haven't forgotten you.

Thank you for your attention.
