This closet of a store in downtown Hallowell is rarely staffed. After surfing the quasi-organized shelves and floor piles stacked up alongside, patrons are simply asked to pay on the honor system, mail a check, or return the book later. It’d be worth a visit for the novelty alone, but the jam-packed shelves hold some treasures—and bargains.
