I love everything about old bookstores.  And this one in Savannah has its own eccentricities.  It is set back on the second story of Factor’s Walk, a row of old cotton warehouse and merchant offices on the river in Savannah.  Just getting to it (down some hairpin stairs and across a plank bridge) is an adventure.
The front half of the store space is devoted to discount Mesa ware.  Yeah, I have no idea.  On my most recent visit, there was a lovely older woman manning the check out table who listened to a 50s bubblegum version of Johnny Mercer’s “Dream” on constant loop. 
The back half of the store has the treasures.  They deal primarily in old books.  First editions, often.  They have categories like “Authors You Should Have Heard Of” and “Books with Names in the Titles.”  It makes for an enjoyable hunt and peck.
