Second Story Books and Antiques is not your average bookshop or antique store. Its history dates back to the 1970s when the store was a quaint little bookstore on the second floor of a D.C. building. Now, they’re actually one of the largest sellers and collectors of used and rare books in the world! They’ve even been ranked one of the top ten bookstores in the country by USA Today.
No matter what you’re in search of, you’ll find it at Second Story Books and Antiques. If you’re not sure what type of read you’re in the market for, either pop into the store or visit their website. You can browse their selection of 1950s comics, rare graphic novels, even rare books dating back to the 1800s, all from the comfort of your Capitol Hill apartment.
