Calling all bibliophiles! Time to grab your favorite warm beverage (chai latte, thank you very much) and snuggle up with a good book. What better place to do that than a boutique bookshop – and Chester County is home to some of the best! Stop by, find a cozy spot, take in the smell of well-loved classics, and support your local businesses!
Here are some of my top picks:
Baldwin’s Book Barn, West Chester – An barn from the 1820’s converted into a bookstore of classics. You can’t get any more “storybook” than that! http://www.bookbarn.com/
Wellington Square Book Shop, Exton – If you want it, they can find it! Check out their staff picks too for your next great read. https://wellingtonsquarebooks.indielite.org/
Bramble Books, Spring City – I personally love the feel of a gently used book. It’s like an old friend. Very friendly owner and staff. https://www.bramblebookshop.com/
Ideas Bookstore, Phoenixville – lovely bookstore with a children’s nook. http://ideasbookstorekimberton.com/
Title Page, Bryn Mawr – over 100,000 books, many out of print.
Reads & Co, Phoenixville – Best of the Philly suburbs in 2020! https://www.readsandcompany.com/
Second Reading (I & II), West Chester – supporting local seniors, this bookstore takes donation of gently used books. http://wcseniors.org/second-reading-ii-book-store/
