I went into the book store. It was very small, very limited amount of books. It was in the historic district and was all part of the witchy experience in Salem.

This one did not disappoint. The cashier was very friendly and knowledgeable. I purchased an autographed copy of "Ghosts of Salem" for about $12 and a tee shirt that says "I like books more than people" for about $20. Very reasonably priced and unique items.

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.
