More About Us

We are currently open Saturday through Tuesday, afternoons only, or by chance; phone or text 617-504-7215 for more information.

Three years ago we moved from Western Massachusetts where I was co-owner of a bookshop in Shelburne Falls, a quaint New England village on the Deerfield River, and a destination for many weekend travelers. We also had a good percentage of visitors from across the country and from around the world. The Bridge of Flowers, The Trolley Museum, and the glacial potholes (interesting geological formations in the Deerfield River) were big draws. And having three bookstores in a small town of 1700 was also attractive to many; we were a true book-destination. In our current location, being on a busy state highway, we cannot depend on “walk-in” traffic like we did in Shelburne Falls but we are hoping to be “discovered” by locals in the Ithaca and Trumansburg vicinity, as well as by visitors to the Finger Lakes and the many vineyards in this beautiful area.

With another used bookshop in the Village of Trumansburg (One Green Horse Books), it makes two stores in the Trumansburg area. Soon I hope we also become a book-destination.

I also sell online through ABE Books (abebooks.com); to view my inventory, click on “Sellers” and search for “Muilenberg”, click on “Michael L. Muilenberg, Bookseller” and you can search my online inventory (which I don’t keep in the store). If you see anything of interest and want to look at it or have questions, send me a message through this website (see Contact page), or text or phone me at 617-504-7215.

We look forward to meeting you.
