We are a small, family-run, women-led, indie bookstore. Re-Turn the Page was founded in 2015.
Lori took over the space and inventory of an established used bookstore located within the Williamstown Farmers Market. Over the last 6+ years, our mother-daughter duo has re-designed the store layout, digitized the in-store inventory, started bringing in NEW RELEASES and sidelines, and built this brand new website!
You will most often see the owner, Lori, working in the store Thursday - Saturday. She handles the day-to-day business including ordering inventory and ensuring our shelves are adequately stocked. I (Aly) primarily work on our social media presence and website updates. You may find me helping out behind the counter on Saturdays. Our team is supported by the rest of the family who volunteer time and physical effort whenever needed.
Both Lori and I enjoy great mysteries with happy endings and love talking about stories, learning of new authors, and sharing our favorites. We've curated our book lists based on our experience as readers just as much as our expertise as booksellers. We hope you find some new favorites and share them with us on Instagram - @originalreturnthepage
RTP has most fiction genres in-store: Trade Fiction, Fantasy, YA, and of course Romance & Mystery. We also have limited non-fiction items such as History, True Crime, Metaphysical books, & Tarot.
Since taking over the previous bookstore, we have kept the Trading Program for used books which has been in place for more than 20 years. Learn more about our Trading Policy and how you can take advantage!
We have more planned so stay tuned for updates!
