I love a good indie bookstore, and I'm always thrilled when a new one opens near me.
Bay Books opened this May in the lovely town of Suttons Bay. This community has been without a bookstore for several years, so this is an important addition to the stores there.
BAY BOOKS, 419 N Saint Joseph Street, Suttons Bay, Michigan
[I don't know about you, but I need to visit a bookstore when I'm exploring a town!]

The store has a homey vibe since it is housed in a former house. Books are shelved in several rooms and you can wander from room to room.
Nicely curated selection of books
Notice the small sign on top of shelf that reads: 'SWEAT IS FAT CRYING'
The front room is where the great selection of children's books are kept.
