A Small Town Treasure

Have you ever walked into a shop and thought, oh my, I could waste hours in here? The sights and smells are almost intoxicating and you know, this little space was created just for you.

I felt that sensation this weekend when Steven and I explored the small town center in Enumclaw, Washington. It's the country, folks. Like small, small town country. Little mom and pop shops reside on every corner and the cows far outnumber the people. It's cute, quaint, and homey. We enjoyed a tasty breakfast at a small diner and then decided to do some window shopping before heading home.

That's when we found the cutest little bookstore I've ever stepped foot in, The Sequel.
It's a tiny shop stacked from floor to ceiling with used books, charming trinkets, and plenty of seating for you to plop down on and flip the pages of a great find while enjoying a freshly made cup or joe. In other words, one step removed from heaven.

Books, coffee, and boardgames?? Is there really any better way to spend a rainy Saturday? I think not.

I'm in heaven just reading this post and seeing pictures of this charming store! I could spend hours there, for sure :) {Pretty sure hubs would be done with it after a few games of Scrabble haha. Oh, how opposites attract!}

It's like being in a Nicholas Sparks book only on the west coast instead of North Carolina.

This is one of the nicest used book stores I've seen! And I also have a soft spot in my heart for mom and pop shops. I think they have found the perfect combination of things to sell, especially in a small town when there may not be a lot going on. A good book and cup of coffee never gets old.

Those sleepy small town finds are always the best.

oh wow this seriously sounds cozy. I can almost smell the old used books mixing with the coffee scent... Divine. Would love to visit this place. xx
