Book wormWelcome to Hidden Gems Bookstore

"The Smallest Bookstore still contains More IDEAS OF WORTH than have been presented in the Entire History of Television"  Andrew Ross

Hidden Gems Bookstore:
'Treasures For Your Mind' 

 We are a gently used bookstore but do carry a variety of new books (as mentioned below and listed on the book list section); as well as locally made greeting cards; postcards; and bookmarks, etc.


****************On Saturday, March 21st, we will be closing the store for what we hope is a short period of time. This will give everyone, including ourselves, a chance to keep safe and healthy. I can be reached at beth@hiddengemsbookstore.com

We will keep the website and facebook updated. 

Thanks and take care for now.**********************************************
