604 Rte. 6A,
East Sandwich, MA 02537
Two minutes from a Cape Cod shore stands a mid-century ranch that is the home of Mary’s Bookstore. In the cozy space inside, owner Mary Wagner handsells a great selection of mystery and children’s books.
While Mary’s Bookstore specializes in mystery books, she also has a growing section in religion. She has a strong costumer base and says a lot of Sandwich business comes from people who visit the town for the day or the weekend and are incredibly loyal customers. They trust her to make recommendations and so she reads a lot to keep her literary tastes alive. Tourist season is when she has the most business.
A book lover first, she also takes the time to show me limited edition children’s books — a pop-up book for the classic WIZARD OF OZ.
Before I leave, she makes me promise to see the Cape.
