KICK-ASS BOOKSTORES

Unconventional anything is our forte here at Buck Off, but when adding creative and kick ass bookstores to the mix? It’s quite the treat for us editors. From our own town, there was a really amazing place called Derby Square Bookstore (see the owners and their crazy place below). The store was literally stacked with books, floor to ceiling, and the staff knew where everything was, which was an accomplishment. Though the store closed, with Wicked Good Books taking its place, we wanted to give a shout out to all of those weird and strange bookstores still surviving.

I’m feeling very nautical lately so adding books to the mix is just a plus! (Sarah Henshaw – U.K.)

These books may be out of reach but that is part of the adventure. So go out and travel and find your own little piece of literary heaven in a unique bookstore.
