Very cute gift shop with lots of unique items. Staff was very helpful. Much more than a giftshop also a full bookstore.

Lots and lots of gifts and candy with a small bookstore component. It is a bit of tourist trap during the holidays, but is worth the stop to see the historic site.

Despite what trip advisor says it is not the oldest bookstore in the world, it is the oldest in the US.

This is not just a book shop it has a lot of different things in there. I love the Moravian stars the different choices of ornaments. It was a little crowded but of course look at the time of year.

We go there everytime we go to Bethlehem...one of a kind place. .soooo many unique things. .plus a large bookstore..you have to go there when you visit the town...The new addition of the Meadery is a hit too.

In the heart of Bethlehem, PA ... you’ll discover a gem of a bookstore that offers books for everyone, a story hour for kids, music, gifts, jewelry, candy, gifts, Christmas items and more ... because you’re in the center of the historic district that offers more than you can imagine ... within walking distance. And there’s incredible history and architecture all around you to experience.
