Pinehurst Inn is thrilled to congratulate Apostle Island Booksellers on their opening in downtown Bayfield, with a ribbon cutting scheduled for 5pm today, May 27th.
While we tend to talk a lot about the more active recreational activities we offer our visitors, the retail options are simply wonderful. Apostle Island Booksellers is a great example of the unique character of Bayfield businesses. The beautifully renovated building honors the history while still providing a comfortable, welcoming space. Pay attention to the beautiful mural in the children’s section, painted by “Painter Bob” – yes, another example of Bayfield flavor. And be sure to check out the great “book” in the upper corner of the back of the main space.
The book selection is broad and interesting – great reads with much of what we’d all expect (broad non-fiction and gripping fiction) along with more that speaks to the culture, history and character of the Chequamegon Bay and Apostle Islands area.
The thing about Bayfield is that it attracts really interesting people. And those people are opening businesses such as Apostle Island Booksellers that reflect and share those interests & values. So, enjoy the books, the coffee (Big Water), the chocolate (Sweet Sailing), the pottery (Eckels & Stone’s Throw), the jewelry (Watermusic & Donalee Designs)….oh, the list does go on…
These are the people and their products that add such richness to the Bayfield experience.
