Visiting Wicked Good Books in Salem, MA

Visiting Wicked Good Books in Salem, MA

After the wedding, we went to Salem, MA for the day to show our Illinois friends around. While on that trip, I, of course, stopped into the local bookshop!

This is definitely one of my favorite shops in New England! I just have to stop in each time I'm in the area.

Let's dive in!

When you get closer to the store, you'll be drawn in to the window displays immediately. Of course, being in Salem, Mass, there are a bunch of books about the Witch Trials and other topical things.

And when you first step through the door, you'll see their lovely Local Interest table. Behind and to the left of this table is another section dedicated to local books and authors. I easily could have spent an hour or so looking through all of these books, but as we were in a time crunch, I snagged one book that I had my eye on and moved on.

I just love how adorable this shop is! From the table displays and shelving, to the holiday related items and bookish goods, there's something for everyone here! I also loved all of the old brick, hardwood flooring, and the fairy lights!
