In honor of Independent Bookstore Day and Indies everywhere, we are thrilled to host our 2nd Annual Spring Market!

Our parking lot will be closed for the day, for local crafters to sell alongside distributors for Scentsy, Mary Kay, and similar companies. Stop by and shop independent, inside the store and out!

Because this is Independent Bookstore Day, we will have some unique items in store that are only available to indie bookstores, and not until we open that morning, so make sure to pop in the store and check them out!


Stop by and take care of all your shopping needs with independent sellers from your community, inside the store and out!


Don't miss the way-cool, exclusive merchandise only available at independent booksellers like KBB! 

Below are a few examples.


Chabon IBD

The Sandmeyer Reaction: Exclusive signed IBD Edition.

The second edition in our on-going $6 Stories series is a short story that was cut from Michael Chabon’s newest novel, Moonglow. It’s a hilarious side-story of the half-baked plan to catch a German spy via the well-connected Jews of Philadelphia’s underbelly in the 1940s. In typical Chabon style, it’s fast and funny, and bursting with a cast of perfectly rendered outcasts and oddballs.
