We are located on the main shopping street in historic Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, about 2 blocks from the King Street Metro Station. We are a general stock used bookstore with equal amounts of fiction and nonfiction, and a smaller selection of children's books.

For a general idea of what categories we have in our store, look at our buying policy. We carry just about everything that is NOT on our "We Can't Use" list.

We have about 25,000 titles, although we haven't counted lately.
We are open every day and hope you will visit when you're in town!
