This is a MUST stop if you are anywhere near Rock Hall, MD. Not only do they have an excellent well curated and stocked assortment of books. Their selection of books on Eastern Shore is fantastic. Some real treasures and finds, including out of print and hard to find books on history and stories of the Eastern Shore and it's people. Plus it is not only books, they have local art work and support local artists. Get on their mailing list to find out about when they have local author talks or music events. We are so delighted to have found them, and that such places exist on the Eastern Shore.

What an amazing bookstore! We felt like we stumbled upon the best kept secret in Rock Hall. Local authors, local artisans, and a wide variety of books and artworks! It was Valentine’s weekend so they offered refreshments and snacks to customers and even organized a couples scavenger hunt throughout the store! A MUST if you’re on the Eastern Shore!
