Park Street Books & Toys might just be the most
business I have been to in New England. Owner Jim James loves books,
cares about his community and is one of the nicest people you'll ever
meet -- equally good to parents and kids. That James owns the largest

We have found his bookstore has a higher batting average for
finding what you need than the big chains and with extremely reasonable
prices. If Jim doesn't have
the new or used
book you are looking for, he'll get it for you quickly. As it stands,
Park Street Books & Toys has an astonishing selection of childrens' books on display throughout the welcoming, homey-like two-story, brick building (with wonderful student-generated, hand-drawn murals and a great aquarium).
Park Street Books also
features an impressive toy selection with the accent on fun yet
educational items. There's also a pottery studio called the Pottery
Place with mugs, plates, piggy banks, wall plates, trinket boxes,
figurines and more at very fair prices. Drop-ins are welcome, as well

What a wonderful store, like a vibrant community within the
close-knit community of Medfield. Every time I visit Park Street Books,

small business is indeed still alive, well and thriving in America!
Park Street Books & Toys is located at
504 Main St., Medfield. Tel 508-242-3083.
