A Timeless Book Store in a Small, Northern Town. Amazing!
A historic brownstone bookstore located on Lake Superior's Chequamegon Bay near the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. You will discover new, used, and discounted books on every conceivable subject: history, poetry, art, politics, gardening, outdoor adventure, travel, health, antiques – truly an endless list. There are so many to choose from that Richard has been heard to say, "We have books that no one has or even wants to have!" The bookstore is also a source for rare, esoteric, scholarly and hard-to-find books, along with the expertise to evaluate these treasures.
