I'm assuming you saw our recent post about our visit to the Retro Emporium in Kent, Washington. If not, check it out HERE.
While we were in the neighborhood, we stumbled across another great hidden gem of a shop that I felt needed to be mentioned, Page Turner Books. This place was definitely an unexpected surprise.
I went in to Page Turner Books expecting a good old used book store, which is pretty awesome in itself, but this place was so much more.
They had wall to wall shelves and aisles full of books, toys, funko pops, collectible magazines, and a nice selection of comic books from all eras, with more to come according to the owner.
I grabbed a few pictures of the shop. Check it out:
Sadly I didn't have much time to check it out, but I'll definitely be back to dig in more, especially since the owner seemed really friendly. I liked how he was really cool with the group of children that were hanging out. That made a nice impression on me.
Page Turner books is located at 314 W. Meeker St, in Kent, Washington. Follow them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Page-Turner-Books-244399273247/
The shop is literally a few doors down from the Retro Emporium, so it's definitely worth taking a few hours out of a weekend and head to downtown Kent, Washington and check these places out.
