About Saucony Book Shop

The Saucony Book Shop, located in the heart of scenic rural Berks County, epicenter of Pennsylvania German folk culture (our shop specialty), offers a full range of gently used, rare, and antiquarian books, with many volumes of scholarly merit and an unabashed emphasis on the quaint, the curious, and the utterly obscure. We make no attempt to be a general-service book shop. Our inventory is highly selective, individually chosen from among the hundreds of thousands of books to which we have access annually at auctions, library and estate sales, and through individual scouts and vendors. We do not handle material that does not meet our expectations in terms of condition or interest to our specialized, idiosyncratic customers. Despite maintaining a browsing inventory of more than 15,000 volumes, we have minimized our carbon footprint by maintaining our entire operation -- including inventory storage, packing and shipping, and retail sales -- in less than 1,000 square feet, a cozy little operation housed primarily in a former shoe repair shed alongside the Saucony Creek in Kutztown, Pennsylvania. NEW shop hours: Tuesdays through Fridays 12-6 p.m., weekends by appointment or chance. Do drop by and browse the eclectic selection gracing our shelves, or ask our ferociously over-read staff for recommendations. If traveling from a distance, please call ahead to be sure that we're not off at another auction! Selling antiquarian books of merit since 1981. Full search and appraisal services; always keenly interested in purchasing quality used books, whether by the piece or by the bushel. Member, Independent Online Booksellers Association (IOBA). Thanks for reading about us! Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
