Baldwin's Book Barn in PA to close

Sorry the title should read "for sale"

Although I live in Oregon I am from Chester Country PA(west of Philly). Baldwins Book Barn in southern Chester County has been a treat for me over the years. Its what it sounds like- a huge old dairy barn converted into a used (and new) book store.

If you love books this place is a delightful collection of old and rare books and some not so rare. It opened at its current site in 1946 and currently has some 200,000 books in the collection with some as much as 200 years old. The current (2nd generation) owners are retiring and selling the business.

I doubt I am in a position to purchase the business but I have sent them an inquiry anyway just in case. I hope whoever does purchase it keeps the old book business going.

My mom lives in East Berlin (Pennsylvania), I sent her the link, not that she'll buy it, but she would love to just go hang out there!

There's another Book Barn in Nazareth (about an hour north of Philly) that just closed. At first that's what I thought you were talking about.

Hey y'all,

I work at the Book Barn. The Barn is for sale, but it will go to the right person and no rush is being put on it. Meanwhile, we have started a blog at: http://bookbarn.tumblr.com/ where you can also hook up with us at Facebook, Youtube etc... We're going to be getting more active online. Until further notice, it's full steam ahead!

Have any questions, @reply me on Twitter ( http://www.twitter.com/baldwinbookbarn ) or email me at info@bookbarn.com.

Have the best day ever!!!

:-)
