In true Ol’ Curiosities and Book Shoppe style, owners Spencer Madrie and Ann Mote have added a sister store to their beloved first retail endeavor. The West Claiborne Marketplace is located just across the street,at 133 West Claiborne Street in downtown Monroeville, Alabama, and offers up room for all the “curiosities” Spencer, Anne, and their friends and family are now making available to the public. Hours of operation are Monday – Saturday, 11:00 am – 6:00 pm, and Sunday, 1:00 – 5:00 pm.
“This store is the missing piece of the puzzle,” Spencer explains. “We’re really excited to be able to share this extension of the book store with those who will appreciate a broadened offering of items that make great additions to home or souvenirs from the literary capital of Alabama.” With a wonderful, down-home feel, the marketplace also offers up booth space to others who want to pander their wares to the public, making it a great stopping point for tourists and locals alike who want to take something special home.
From homemade wreaths to old attic finds that are sure to add to the nostalgia of any place, from lovely handmade décor items to treats from the kitchens of some of the South’s finest cooks, there’s truly something for everyone here. Shoppers will be enamored and may just spend hours whiling away their time, turning over charming pieces of history in their hands, or searching for just the right pieces de resistance to complete their favorite rooms and spaces. The West Claiborne Marketplace is perfect place to find the perfect piece, no matter what it is you’re looking for.
Beautiful antique and vintage-finish furniture, works of art that are nothing short of a steal, dishes, mirrors, signs, wall-hangings, and—of course—books round out the offerings of this truly unique shop. In fact, the list of what you may find here is almost endless…
