Testimonial from Atticus on Google My Business: “This is an amazing place if you love books & music. This organization helps support teachers and ultimately students and could use your help to complete that mission. They also have some Office supplies, DVDs both Movies and TV, childrens books, musical instruments. Aisles and aisles of books and Vinyl records – even antique books and 1st editions. Looking for something rare or unusual, they might have it and so worth the adventure – like spending an hour or so in an old bookstore or old fashioned record store. Prices are unbelievable! A must for music and book lovers.”
