Longfellow Books is yet another bookshop that, while I lived in Portland for years, never visited…
I’m so glad that I finally made it in!
Let’s dive in!
Longfellow Books in Portland, Maine
When walking up the path toward the shop, you can spot the book carts right away! I loved that the plant pot and the signage was the same color, and of course the window displays were eye catching.
Right when you enter the shop, the New Hardcover Fiction draws you in. As I was perusing this table, I couldn’t help but keep looking at the book posters on the far wall.
Another section that caught my attention was the section that highlighted staff picks!
As this was a bookshop in a major tourist focused-town, they had the quintessential section about the state with something for everyone!
The signage to direct you to the sections you may be looking for was hung from the ceilings.
They also have a cute children’s section in the back of the store that had books and toys.
Back at the front of the store, there was a lovely bookish gifts section! There were a few things I was just itching to snag here, but I held off. There was also a lovely section with notebooks and cards.
The section that I spent the most time in was the Murder, Mystery and Mayhem section.
