Books+Wine+Puppies

I forgot to tell you guys about the coolest bookstore I got to visit while in North Carolina! Picture this- a rambling, two story shop full of vintage books with a wine and espresso bar inside and BONUS, you can bring your dog?!?!  Is there anything better??? Meet the Battery Park Book Exchange in Asheville.

I loved the vibe of this place- layered rugs, mismatched vintage furniture and so many nooks to hide in while looking at books and sipping a nice Pinot.

 I am SO loving that sofa.

If you prefer espresso to wine, there’s this.  I personally, prefer BOTH.

I mean. Yeah. This is pretty much everything. My head just exploded.

And I LOVED their wine glasses with their dog logo!!!

There’s even an outdoor cafe too for those nice days.

This visit reminded me of something though… that I need to get a new camera.  While I am a total Instagram addict, I want to be able to take serious pics for the blog with a real camera.  I’m thinking about the Canon Rebel SL1.  Being small and light get a digital SLR is important- my last Nikon felt like carrying around a brick so I never took it anywhere!  Anyone have it? Thoughts??
