Fun, frolic, food, live music, arts and crafts, wine tastings, and more every month in historic downtown Siler City. Visit the independent bookstore, Paperbacks Plus, and enjoy live music, check out the NC Arts Incubator, have coffee at Courtyard Coffee, explore the Farmers' Alliance (still in business after 120+ years!). Additional shops and galleries will be open. Farmers' Market on Saturdays (Apr 7 - Nov) from 9.30am - 1pm.

Remember Siler City from the Andy Griffith show? Andy, Barney, and the other Mayberry folk went there on Saturday to do their shopping. In fact, Francis Bavier, the actress who played Aunt Bee, lived only a couple of miles from where our used book store, Paperbacks Plus!, now stands.

Find the same down-home ambience here that existed in Floyd's Barber Shop or Walker's Drug Store. Browse, talk, have a cup of coffee. You get the same personal service at Paperbacks Plus! that you'd hope to find in any small-town store.

Paperbacks Plus! has thousands of titles -- Mystery, Adventure, Romance, Science Fiction and Fantasy, Westerns, Espionage, War, Sagas, Self-help, Hobbies, Heath, Biographies, Humor, and Christian -- to name a few. We accept books in trade and maintain store credit accounts for you. We order new books, keep wish lists by customer, and search for books on those list. Gift certificates are available when you just don't know which book that certain someone needs.
