Yesterday I started my annual summer road trip. This year we are traveling up the East coast and then over into the mountains. I have made it my goal to visit as many independently owned bookstores as possible.
Our first stop on our road trip is Savannah, Georgia. Our first day in town I discovered Books on Bay at the riverfront in the historic district.
This adorable vintage shop is located on the second floor of a beautiful brick building. It is nestled into a spot between restaurants, vintage shops, and art galleries.
Books on Bay is definitely a unique shopping experience. It is like stepping into a piece of history. This store specializes in collectable books. There are a wide range of books including first editions and gorgeous leather-bound books.
However, the most striking part of Books on Bay, for myself at least, was their collection of series. They have the largest collections of vintage series I have ever seen. Some of the series include Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, and The Dana Girls to name a few. Not only are their series expansive the store offers a unique tool. Next to the series they have pamphlets that are checklists for the series. This is a perfect deal for a collector.
Books on Bay is definitely a store you must experience when you are in Savannah. Though it is very different from the bookstores I typically frequent I am so glad I discovered this gem. Be sure to check out their Facebook page and website below.
