Decent selection, especially because there aren't many places to find used books in town other than the flea market. Unfortunately, was hit by lightning last week and is now... read more

This used to be a quality second hand bookstore with knowledgeable staff but it was destroyed by a fire in May 2014. Obviously, my travel date is bad but this is the only way to comment.

Officially closed. There was a blaze that demolished the store a few years ago. Now the only JellyBeans is in Owosso. I never liked the business practices of this JellyBeans.

Decent selection, especially because there aren't many places to find used books in town other than the flea market. Unfortunately, was hit by lightning last week and is now closed from the ensuing fire. I hope they reopen soon! I also hope they change their credit policy. Store credit should be good on anything in the store.

Looking for some old vinyl to add to your collection? They have it here, and a whole lot more. This place has all kinds of media items to buy and trade. They have DVDs, VHS, Records, Cds, Cassette tapes, Books of all kinds, video games, and probably a few more media formats I can't think of at the moment. The... More
