101 North: Willits, The Book Juggler and Willits Center for the Arts


The Book Juggler  182 S Main St., (707) 459-4075.  Tu-Sat 10am-6pm.  Watched over by Zeus, the store dog, this atmospheric used bookstore has narrow aisles line with books in a warren of tiny rooms.  It has an interesting collection and is a delight to browse.  Bring along some of books to trade in for credits toward purchase.  Also a music store, it claims to have “the best selection of strings, accessories for guitarists, ukuleles, harmonicas and sheet music on the North Coast.”

Willits Center for the Arts  71 E. Commercial St., (707) 459-1726.  W-Sun 11am-5pm.  Situated within a grand 1930s building, this center produces gallery shows of local artists--including jewelry makers--that change regularly.  When I visited, a pop-up shop for Valentine’s Day was happening, and with the power of suggestion my husband bought me some gorgeous heart earrings by Teplow.
