What We Are
French doors flung open, a brightly lit, magical room entices you to cross its threshold into a world of excitement, intrigue, entertainment and knowledge.

Curious?  Does such a place of enchantment really exist in Downtown Murphy? Yes, it truly does. Our merchandise is carefully selected to include not only best sellers and classic book titles, but also an eclectic mix of local literature, arts and crafts.  

We also offer on-line shopping and for a small fee, we will find "out of print" or hard to find publications. We are happy to accommodate mail orders.

The store is located in a complex known as The Shoppes of Murphy, featuring a gourmet coffee/wine store and other retail stores, providing Murphy's most exciting retail center.

Visitors and Newcomers
Our local and regional section with maps, guidebooks, hiking, nature and regional history and literature, greets the "out-of-towners" exploring or relocating to our area.  Additionally, we can help you find the perfect souvenir or gift for any occasion.

Come, pay us a visit in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. Enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine from The Daily Grind & Wine while browsing our wonderful selection of books and art.
