Brand new releases, best sellers and prize winners, The Red Door stays stocked with some of the best books now and from years gone by. We’ve got hot-off-the-press books in a wide variety of genres, topics and age ranges. We offer books on local history and books by local authors. And if you can’t find what you’re looking for, our knowledgable staff will be happy to find what you’re looking for or special order it for you.
Used Books: Rediscover Classics
One thing that many visitors to The Red Door notice right away is that we’re not just any used book store. We love books. And we want people who love books. People who want to know more. Explorers, thinkers, creators, doers. Guess how many copies of 50 Shades of Grey we have? Zero. Guaranteed. We like good books. Okay, so “good” is relative, but we do our best. We’ve got the new stuff, we’ve got the classics, we’ve got hidden gems and maybe even books you didn’t know you had to have until you found them.
Discover the creativity of Saxapahaw and North Carolina
We don’t just have books– come in and discover amazing original creations from artists and authors in and around Saxapahaw and around the entire state of North Carolina. Painters, sculptors, potters, photographers, writers and craftspeople. Custom handmade jewelry and gift items. Because we not only love books, we love art. Help support outstanding local writers and artists, because yeah you could find a gift at a big box store, but you could also get something that was made with love here in North Carolina.
ALAMANCE COUNTY’S ONLY INDEPENDENT BOOK STORE
If you’re a local, you’ll know us as that space next to the post office, and if you’re from a little further afield, you can find us right next to the Farmer’s Market, across the street from the legendary Haw River Ballroom. As the only book store in Saxapahaw and the only independent book store in Alamance County, your visit will be supporting local businesses, local artists and local writers to do what they love to do.
New books (brand new and new reprints) at or below cover price
Most used books are half the cover price, often less. We also have an ever-growing selection of rare and hard-to-find books.
Children’s books start at $1
The Red Door also hosts regular events, such as weekly story times for preschool and school age children, live art and author events, and soon, live performances, classes and more exciting stuff to do in Saxapahaw.
