ABCD Books Of Camden Maine

This is a special OUT OF PRINT Bookstore.  
And just like Camden, it is charming. Let's have a look.

This is the owner. She is very sweet and super helpful. 
If you can't find a book, contact ABCD BOOKS.

After you walk in and pass the owner, this is what you see.

I have found that most of Maine is filled with well read intellectuals. In most of these charming little towns, you will have a difficult time finding a lot of different items to purchase. 
But you will never have to go very far for something to read. In these tiny towns it is not unusual to find 2 or 3 book stores. 
The libraries are loaded, better than the library in Boca Raton, Florida. 
Perhaps because Boca Raton-ians shop, they don't read much.

Isn't this cozy and funky ??
That's my funky daughter, she is a reader and loved the store.

BTW, this is a very large shop. I have not posted all the really great reading corners . The owner has done a fabulous job with her place. ABCD BOOKS has an inviting and warm atmosphere.
She had interesting things on the bookshelves that were for sale as well.

My daughter Andi & me at the end of the days adventures.

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.

Private Paradise
