This is a nice place to stop in for a quick look around. They have some new and used books, plus some gifts. Their logo is super cute. You can ask to have it stamped or have a sticker put on your purchase.

Small local bookstore. Friendly, helpful staff. Offers many titles which deal with topics local to Salem - history, witches, potions, spells, etc. Also a good selection of contemporary fiction in case you left your book on the train or someplace.
