Half Price Book Barn

I love this little bookstore. It’s in a house just South of the Justin Boot Factory parking lot. Today I scored a Dracula comic book from 1974 for $3 for my husband as a Valentine’s day gift. And a pulp novel with an pulp cover for $1. I spent about $50 and the owner was happy. You spend $50 at a big book store and you won’t see this much joy. They truly appreciate your business and have great prices.

They’re open Tuesday through Friday from 10:30 to 5:30 at 321 Hemphill in Fort Worth, Texas. It’s owned by Jean Rance and Bobbie Brown. You feel good spending money here and you’re sure to find something you love.

Fort Worth famous author trivia, Patricia Highsmith’s Grandmother owned a boarding house between the store and the Justin Book Factory. The author of The Talented Mr. Ripley and Strangers on a Train spent a good deal of her early life in Fort Worth. I can’t help but wonder which amusement park she was thinking of in the climax of Strangers on a Train.
