Archangel Bookstore stocks Orthodox Christian books, music, art and jewelry. Literature in stock ranges from children's books and historical references to inspiring lore and recent articles imported from Greece, Russia and Bulgaria. Christian gifts include large collections of icon painting and jewelry crosses in 14K gold, sterling silver, enamel, olive wood, and mother of pearl. While you are there, check the special events calendar because in house lectures are offered often.
It is a lovely little religious (Orthodox) bookstore, which even has it's own small chapel in the back room.
Great selection of icons, cards, books - if you are Orthodox. These items might not interest you so much, if you are not.
The thing I really go here for is the incense - produced by monks in an Orthodox monastery, this stuff is the best around! This is not stick incense, but the resins that you have to put on a burning charcoal. I have seen at least five different types of rose incense here - all distinct, and great. The "Jerusalem" and "Byzantium" are favorites of mine also.
Check it out!
When I first walked into the bookstore I was simply stunned. The walls were covered with beautiful icons, the smell of fragrant incense lingered in the air and mystical chants were playing in the background. In the back of the store they have a little chapel. The manager, a very friendly woman, explained they even have services there sometimes, and that there is a lecture given there every week on a spiritual theme.
The bookstore is geared towards Orthodox Christians, but during the short time that I was there, I noticed that many other types of people came into the store. Some bought candles, some bought icons, others bought books or crosses or prayer-ropes... Amazingly, the bookstore had something for everyone that came in. I had heard my friends raving about this place, and boy! were they right! It is so much more than a "mere" bookstore! The only thing they don't have are eatables, but great restaurants and coffee-shops are less than a block away
