Washington State Bookshop Tour: Pearl Street Books

Last month I wrote about my joyriding trip to Yakima in June. Before we had made it to wine country, my mate and I stopped off in Ellensburg, WA. Known for Central Washington University, this small town has a lot of charm. 

Particularly their local bookshop Pearl Street Books.

Located next to a wine shop, it’s quite the place to be! The weekend we were there also happened to be a Dashund parade day!

Inside the bookshop, it’s full of warmth and sectioned by interests. I loved how clear the books were organized.

They even had the perfect display of a ‘Tea’ section!

Upstairs housed local Washington State artists work, drawings of local nature and Mount Rainer. 

The staff are friendly, and let you browse at your leisure. There are plenty of gift type items to purchase, stationary, it’s nice to see a local bookstore be a hub for gifting of the written word.

Adorable and I wish this bookstore was closer, Pearl Street is a great place to pick up the latest book in a multitude of genres. If you’re ever in the area don’t forget to pay them a visit and then get some wine from next door! A pint in the park yeah?
