Golden Bough Bookstore
A look at the little bookstore that could.
Golden Bough offers a literal floor to ceiling selection of different genres.
Nestled on Cotton Avenue is Golden Bough Bookstore, a locale that specializes in selling vintage books. Golden Bough has served those in the Macon area since 1989.
Golden Bough has three "shop cats" who mill about the store throughout the day. Golden bough is open from 12-7 p.m. Monday-Saturday.
Photos of authors can be found hanging on many of the shop's corners.
This bookend, modeled after a chimp, sits adjacent to a buddha bookend.
"These are a few of my favorite things...Heatherly, Eric, and the Golden Bough Bookstore."
Stacks of books sit on every available surface.
Many decorations hang from the bookstore's ceiling, including this colorful, geometric mobile.
Golden Bough features multiple windows that let in natural light for browsing patrons.
The shop's thee cats lounge wherever they please--dog lovers beware!
Eric Wakefield, owner, has worked at Golden Bough since the year 2000. He ended up buying the store in 2007.
Wakefield has a small collection of toys sitting by the front door. He says friends have brought him trinkets as the years have passed.
While all of the shelves inside the store are green, Golden Bough's storefront is a bright blue.
One of the shop cats, Titan, stands guard in front of the shop. He is often the first thing people see when they enter.
