Welcome to Downtown Books & Purl...

Here Come the Holidays

The next two weeks usher in Apalachicola’s civilized alternative to Black Friday (no midnight openings here) and a town wide sale of handmade goods. See the events listings below for details.

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  have fun doing it! Special orders are our specialty. We ship everywhere. We are open Monday through Saturday from 10 to 5:30, and most Sundays from 11 to 4.
