Once Upon A Time bookstore

Home is where the story begins. You'll love this charming location in downtown Decorah (right next to Vesterheim Museum.) Marlys welcomes you to her bookstore, which is a wing off of her home. Shop the wide selection of books, puzzles, puppets, 18" doll clothing and more. Attention Grandparents: this is the perfect place to bring you grandchildren. People of all ages will find something to treasure at the store.

The stunning "Secret Garden" is open now and is the perfect place to get started on your new book, enjoy your own sack lunch of coffee or strike up a conversation with friends.

Open Tues-Friday 1-5:30pm and all day on Saturday. Feel free to call for other times.

*Special orders may be taken and you can expect quick delivery! Handmade Norwegian outfits for boys and girls may also be ordered
