Spellbound is an independent bookstore just for kids, featuring books for babies through teens. We carry primarily new books but also have a small section of used books and select non-book items that encourage reading and creativity, such as plush toys and posters based on classic book characters, bookmarks and bookplates, music, and educational toys and games.
Our mission is to help raise lifelong readers who are curious, imaginative, and independent thinkers by sharing the magic found when you open a book. In addition to children’s books and related items, Spellbound also offers a different kind of shopping experience for families in Western North Carolina. At our store, the “children’s section” is the entire store, and we are always available to help connect kids with books they will love. We have a carefully selected inventory reflecting the best books of yesterday and today, books that kids will want to read again and again…books with staying power…books that hold you spellbound!
