Great Barrington, Massachusetts, United States
Yellow House Books was opened in 1991 in an appropriately yellow house on Main Street in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. We are part of a growing community of used and rare book dealers in southern Berkshire County, taking advantage of the abundance of books to be had in the area. When we first opened, our small size led us to develop habits of rigorous selectively that have not left us now that we have grown from two rooms to three; we still look for the most interesting books in the best possible condition. A few of our areas of special interest are quite extensive. Childrens illustrated books occupy the better part of our second room, with older collectibles on one side and more recent non-collectibles on the other; adults browse one side, children the other. Our art and photography sections are extensive, filling four large bookcases in the front room, and are also distributed on shelves beside and behind the front counter. Additionally, our interest in music has led us to develop a music section characterized by an abundance of sheet music, songbooks, and books relating to most areas of music from classical to folk to jazz. We are, therefore, a small general shop of about 10,000 volumes with some well-developed specialties. Hours: We are open every day from 10:30 to 5:30, Sundays from 12:00 to 5:00.
