Big Chicken Barn in Ellsworth, Maine has an amazing collection of used books and magazines. If you are ever in the area, I recommend stopping in, if just to flip through some books, like we did!
Check out all of the photos from my Maine Road trip! I’m participating in the August Break again this year! Just to have a little break from the pressures and expectations of regular blogging. Read more about it on Susannah Conway’s site.

Yes, this is what a bookstore should be like! And I love your pictures<3
thank you so much!
I did a little feature about your blog today 🙂
Wow! I would love this place. I’d probably spend WAY to much money too!
funny because I wanted SO MANY things I ended up not buying anything!
Love the tones and "age" of this. =)
This is my kind of bookstore! I could see myself going nuts there!
Oh my goodness! I love bookshops so, so much. And bookshops with this much character!? So neat.
Very cool post – thank you for the indie bookstore love. 🙂
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/katewares] thanks! There were so many pretty books there!
Love how you’ve “aged” all these images. They are wonderful!
Thanks Kate! I thought that technique was appropriate for the subject, glad you agree 🙂
Love book stores like this! There’s one in downtown Detroit that is four stories of old-smelling book goodness.
I had never been to one this big so I was blown away!
Nothing like an old used bookstore! So many magical treasures. Just the smell and feeling of being around books makes me happy. Great photos Ciera!
Thank you so much Jude!
