Page and Palette


The Page and Palette, in Fairhope, Alabama, is one of those bookstores that has managed to not only stay alive but thrive in the midst of all of the big box chain bookstores.  When you walk into Page and Palette, you are welcomed with the smell of books and coffee from the small adjoining cafe.  I loved the stacks and stacks of books found on shelves, tables, and carts. 


Despite the fact that it was a Tuesday morning, the place was packed with shoppers and people stopping by the cafe.  Page and Palette holds book signings for authors of all different genres.  Mark Childress had recently been in town for a signing.


Although the teen section didn’t have any chairs, it calls out to you to grab one of the brightly colored, glossy books to flip through while sitting on the floor. 


I love the books stacked on top of the shelves!


The Page and Palette is located at 32 South Section Street in Fairhope, Alabama.

Thank you to Debbie at Delicious Baby for hosting Photo Friday!

    Wish more unique shops like that still existed around here.

    Reminds me of the bookshop in You’ve Got Mail. And it has such a romantic name, too. Thanks for sharing!

    Finding these little gems of bookstores is something we also love to do while traveling. It isn’t much fun shopping for books around home as almost every indie I can think of around here has been long gone.
