There isn’t an inch of wasted space inside Second Chapter Books in Ligonier, Pennsylvania. The bookshop and boutique is brimming with unique gift items and an impressive selection of books spanning the genres.
Located in the bustling little town of Ligonier, Second Chapter is a quintessential small-town shop that, at least on my visit, was luring in a steady stream of visitors with its cheery curb appeal and varied blend of items.
In addition to the books, you’ll find artwork, candles, bath products, housewares, clothes, toys, and more. There’s a comfy sofa in the back of the shop to sit and peruse your book purchases – and there are certainly a lot to choose from, scattered around the shop from front to back and making for an always-interesting browsing experience.
The service was friendly, the shop was colorful and inviting, and I walked away with a couple of books from my wish list. While you’re in town, be sure to stroll around to the other shops, like the antique store down the street or the ice cream shop, which was a welcome sight on a hot summer day.
Second Chapter Books is located at 139 East Main Street, Ligonier, Pennsylvania. Open Tuesday through Sunday.
