Spellbound is a locally owned independent bookshop specializing in books for babies, kids, and teens.
Events at the bookshop include weekly story times and monthly book clubs, as well as author signings, book character visits, workshops, and other fun activities throughout the year to spark creativity and a love of books. Host your baby shower or birthday party in our event room.
We carry primarily new books but also have a small section of used books and select gifts that encourage reading and creativity, such as plush toys and games 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 Asheville.
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!
In October 2016, Spellbound will celebrate its 12th year serving families and schools in Western North Carolina and beyond. Thanks for keeping us around!
