This is the first place we stopped on arriving in Clarksdale and we found out so much - way more value than what we spent in the store and such passion for the town

Come here every year and always find something new. For the true afficionado of music, this is a treasure trove of books, cd's , records of any form. Even better at the Juke Joint Festival when they host a variety of performances from local musicians.
