Our experience at the Antiquarian Bookstore has been completely professional. The gentleman behind the desk is delightful, as well as a wealth of knowledge. I highly recommend this museum of informed knowledge to the serious buyer.
I was charged a non-refundable fee of $5 cash just to be allowed to step inside the store and see what was for sale. No problem, I love books. Upon entering I soon realized the "aisles" were impassable for anyone but a child or person weighing under 100 pounds. I was able to walk several feet into the main "path" of the store and able to view only the books within an arms reach of that path. As I was leaving a few minutes later I spotted a book in a stack by the door and asked the price. He told me he would not tell me the price of the book unless I first agreed to purchase it sight unseen! For this reason I will never return. He clearly does not want to sell any of his books. I am a buyer, an avid collector and have never left a bookstore empty handed. This man was insulting and the whole ordeal a major disappointment.
