Spoonbill & Sugartown Booksellers

    Spoonbill & Sugartown appears like a small nook on Bedford Avenue, but it is home to an inspiring array of books on art and culture, which is precisely its objective – to provide inspiration to local artists living around Williamsburg. Although Spoonbill was initially focused specifically on art books, it now stocks an eclectic collection on everything from philosophy to fiction, including some rare works. The wacky mélange might be attributable, in part, to the fact that Spoonbill carries both new and gently used tomes, which they source from all over the East Coast. Despite its small size, the shop is easy to get lost in; paging through books is much like making one discovery after another. First you stumble upon an old classic, next the work of an up-and-coming artist. Meanwhile, pleasant music plays in the background because Spoonbill’s always got something going on, including a lively series of spoken word events that feature local poets, authors, and artists.Show lessRead more
