Hi, everyone. This is my first post of course, and let see if I can do it correctly.

I know of a really nice seond hand book shop that I volunteer at ( I say volunteer because it's run by my locally libaray)
Sadly, it only  weekend store only open on Fridays and Saturdays!  The store is called the Book Cellar  and it carries all kinds of books from Western, children books, fantasy, scifi, classic literature ( ect, Austen, Dickens), Romance... The Book Cellar only sells book, but it also taken in used books as well. 

Uh, to answer rule C is kinda hard our Classic literature section hold some surpised but I would say pretty much all of the books are written in English.

Here is the website also the address is here. http://www.fauquiercounty.gov/government/departments/library/index.cfm?action=bookcellar

The book Cellar is in USA, Fauquier, VA. County. Warrenton.

1) tag your posts with the city and country, and type of shop; secondhand, cheap bookshop
2) a. please specify what kind of books the shop sells; science, fantasy, war history, fashion, etc.
2) b. if the shop sells other things, please specify; antiques, art, vinyls, etc.
2) c. please let us know about the language possibilities in the shop. if it's in Germany and has English books as well, tell us.
3) if possible, provide a photo or two...or three. photos larger than 500px in length and wide must be behind a cut
4) address! for god's sake, don't forget the address. website, if any, is a big plus
5) be nice :D

just to clarify: we want to keep big chain stores out of this community. our focus is on independent small stores with their own charm. the price is not the whole point but of course cheap is good.

how to tag your posts:

Let's say you've found a secondhand bookshops in New York that specialises in children's books and vinyls. then your tags must look like this:
usa: new york, secondhand, children's books, vinyls,

I hope this is clear. All users of the community are free to create tags; if a tag is missing from the pre-created list. Feel free to contact the mods nerak_rose  and katanabutch  by PM if you have any questions or concerns.
