|Wellingtown Square bookshop - fountain at entrance|
A charming place in the heart of the Hankin Group's Eagleview community in Chester Springs - The Wellington Square Bookshop! It appears to be the brainchild and personal passion of Sam Hankin - and may have been established just so he could move his personal collection of books out of his home. It is a very warm and welcoming space with dark woods and antique furniture - rocking chairs and comfy sofas with antique rugs and rows upon rows of books.
|Wellingtown Square bookshop - kids corner|
The bookstore has a kid's corner with a nice assortment of classic and contemporary books. Tucked away is a cosy reading area where you can easily spend hours reading with your child. Explore cool toys that entertain and are ok for little fingers to touch, drop in a few coins in the fountain at the entrance - make a wish....
A big thank you to my friend Janine who hosted our bookclub at the Wellington Square bookshop - or else I would never have discovered this local gem! Did I mention that the store gives 20% discounts for book clubs and allows you to host your meeting after hours? A refreshing change from downloading ebooks and shopping on Amazon.com. Stop by to soak in the atmosphere and enjoy the smell and feel of a neighborhood book store.
The address is 549 Wellington Square, Exton, PA 19341 - call 610 458 1144 for more information. Truly a local gem.
