Fern's Garden.. LOVE IT!

I agree, Blue Window should be on the list as well. Luna is great too - they are both wonderful.

I love Apostrophe Books. It is so nice to have an intimate, independent bookstore back in town - and, right on Second Street! Love it. Luna is also fabulous, as is Blue Windows, not on the list.

When it comes to elegant art objects there's nothing like Luna. For all kinds of interesting and unusual items, including beautiful Buddhas, Fern's Garden tops the list. And, for varied reading and related materials, Apostrophe hits the mark. Love them all!

Apostrophe Books is what I remember bookstores used to be before the B.Daltonization/Barnes&Noblefication of the industry. The children's section at Apostrophe is outstanding and their attempts to have children included, nutured, and valued as both readers and customer - even purveyors(!) of books - is laudable and a return to putting the feel of a book in your hands. They are friendly and open to suggestions about how to improve their store. We go walking with our two preschoolers at least once a week and this is their favorite stop along the way.
