Our two stores are open from May through October, and you can visit us online all year long.We'll keep you in touch with new Mackinac and Michigan releases that your local shop might not get as excited about as we do. And although we specialize in Mackinac Island and Northern Michigan items, we are a full service book store.
We do not ship internationally.
