Chamblin's bookmine (used, rare and nonexistent books) is located in Jacksonville, Florida, the city I grew up in. There are two locations- one in Riverside/Lakeshore, and Chamblin's uptown, in downtown Jax by Hemming plaza. I have followed Chamblin's through 3 moves/expansions. I think I started going there right when I learned how to read. I even worked there briefly as a teen.
Chamblin's is the best bookstore on the planet. You need about 3 hours to really go through all the books. The Riverside location is larger and easy to get lost in. Especially in the annex. They buy and trade books too, so every trip to Jax, I bring my books to trade.
It's such a quirky place, and really appeals to my sensibilities, just like Askew Taylor art supplies here in Raleigh. You can be happy wandering for hours, stopping to read at one of the tables, adding to your pile of books. I love to shop for my daughter's books there too. I've found so many great vintage kids books there! There are lots of hidden gems to be found for any book lover. I highly recommend it.
My show is in their newer Uptown location, across from Hemming plaza. I love this area of downtown Jax because the JMOMA is there, the downtown Library- which boasts 3 stories and two outdoor reading porches, plus a huge OWL STATUE on the front of the building and lots of beautiful murals inside. I really wish Raleigh would build a library here like the one in Jacksonville. Le Sigh.
But anyway... If you are in Jacksonville do yourself a favor and go to Chamblin's! But set aside a few hours because it's a rabbit hole!
