Rick and I wanted to open a place where we offered books and gifts for sale in a friendly, comfortable space. We feel so lucky to be in such a unique building at Milton Square in St. Anthony Park. The building was designed in 1909 and additional structures were built in 1912.

The neighborhood has such an inviting atmosphere and is always full of activity. We have already met so many friendly people.

Sue and Rick at Milton Square

We have lived in Minnesota all our lives. Our love of books and the value we place on the importance of reading led us down this path to our own store. We want to be a place where people can come in and find an old favorite, find something new and talk with other people who love books. If you don’t see something you are looking for just let us know and we can order it for you. We offer books for all ages, kids through adults.

We also wanted to offer some unique gifts and feel that we have been able to find some interesting items. 

Be sure to check our upcoming events!

We look forward to meeting you!

Sue & Rick
