Welcome to Litchfield Books

We’re delighted you’re visiting us online and we look forward to seeing you in our store.

Whether you’re on vacation or are fortunate enough to call the Hammock Coast “home,” coastal South Carolina is a pretty special place that offers all of the enjoyment of life. At Litchfield Books, this becomes our guidepost as we go to market to look for the unique cards, gifts, books, and quality items that celebrate life and all those special moments.

Are you in the mood for some serendipitous discovery? Come in and we guarantee you’ll find things you never knew existed. It’s the joy of getting out to touch, feel, and experience a place where items have all been personally selected by the owners. What will you discover? It may be a delicious beach read to savor or a beautiful item for your home. You will find fascinating books that bring South Carolina history alive and signed editions of books written by famous authors that live along the Hammock Coast or have visited here on book tour. You’ll find bright, beautiful travel accessories here as well as the most fabulous selection of greeting cards and lovely stationery … and more.

In need of a very special gift? We are biased, but we believe there is a wonderful gift book for every age, interest, and taste here as well as gifts and the perfect card. We offer complimentary gift wrapping and we’re happy to ship the item for you.

You are especially invited to join us each Friday for the Moveable Feast where you’ll meet an author, be touched in some unexpected way, and savor a delicious lunch at a local independent restaurant. Just check the Events page and plan to join us!

Thank you for supporting locally owned businesses and independent bookstores! It’s our pleasure to be part of this community and give back by supporting the good works of local schools and charities. You make that possible when you decide to shop locally. We hope to see you at Litchfield Books soon … look for us in Fresh Market Commons.
