Black Swan Books
Tucked away in a corner of Richmond's historic Fan district, Black Swan carries hundreds of used and rare books. The shelves are full, but not cluttered, and are easy to browse. The knowledgeable staff will help you quickly locate a particular author or title in the store or through an Internet search. Special orders are welcome. Antique couches and chairs provide comfortable places to sit and read discoveries before purchasing them. Cats curl up here, too, when they tire of prowling through the store.
These folks know books. They have a wide selection of used books, including gardening, history (very Virginia), philosophy and even a bin of inexpensive books to browse. There is a conservation studio where you can get old treasures restored. What a treasure this eclectic bookstore is to our city! I think you can visit them on line, too.
I called this place inquiring about their location, hours, etc, when suddenly I was attacked with the Inquisition! The lady on the phone wanted to know my name, what company I was with, wouldn’t give me an updated address...just horrible customer service! After a few minutes I excused myself and said farewell, realizing that I really didn’t want to do business with this woman! Do you know that she called my phone number right back to confirm my identity! Obviously a real crack-pot! I wouldn’t do business with this “establishment” if they paid me!
