About Us


Family-owned and operated since 1960.  We are a 14 room bookstore in Wells, Maine, open to the public seven days a week from 9am to 5pm EST: (Open 9 AM to 6 PM) July and August. We have an inventory of over 100,000 used, out-of-print and rare books in all categories, with particular strength in Americana, maritime, New England town histories, genealogy, and arts and antiques. We also carry a wide selection of maps and prints from the 16th through 19th centuries.  Looking for something not so rare?  We also have a large selection of paperbacks and hardcover modern fiction. We aim to have a little bit of everything in our inventory, so feel free to drop by to look for yourself, or to drop us a line if you are looking for something specific.
