The Flying Pig Bookstore carries more than 30,000 books, cards, and gifts on hand for all ages, with the ability to order quickly from our 2+million-book database. 




Welcome to the Flying Pig! We are delighted to be locally owned, independent bookstore in Vermont. What began as a tiny venture stocking 6,500 children's books in an 850-sq.ft Charlotte, Vermont post office building has grown over the past two decades to become a nationally known, award-winning store (now located in Shelburne) with more than 30,000 books for grownups as well as kids. Bookselling is an honor, one that we appreciate every day. We have the best staff and customers on the planet. If you're new to the store, we'll look forward to meeting you!


Upcoming Events!

Great selection and friendly, extremely knowledgeable staff to help with all your book needs (or leave you alone to browse in peace). While we are a full-service general bookstore, we have a strong children's book specialty. Yankee Magazine named us 2013 Best Children's Bookstore in New England!

We also write for Publishers Weekly about children's books and bookselling,  in a blog called Shelftalker. Josie and Elizabeth take turns posting bookselling anecdotes, book reviews, funny stuff, and literary treats of all kinds.
