Welcome to Downtown Books & Purl...

THUNDERBOLTS AND LIGHTNING, VERY VERY FRIGHTENING

Downtown Books (and pretty much everything else in  Apalachicola) took a hard hit on June 22, when a violent thunderstorm knocked out our Internet service and our credit card processing machine. We are limping along towards a full recovery, but updating this website has been pretty far down on our to-do list. We hope to be back to business as usual very soon.

Downtown Books and Purl are two unique shops ensconced in Apalachicola’s iconic O.  E. Cone Building at 67 Commerce Street. Owner Dale Julian and compadres Sandy March, and Wallace Floyd offer the best new titles and much-loved classics, exquisite yarns, games and diversions, and exemplary personal service  - and  try to have fun doing it! Special orders are our specialty. We ship everywhere. We are open Monday through Saturday from 10 to 6:00, and most Sundays from 11 to 4.
