Coffee Junkie & my faves in downtown Birmingham, AL



A couple of years ago I couldn’t even stand the smell of coffee, now the first thing I look for when we take road trips is coffeeeee houses. I’m becoming a coffe junkie, I was told.

If you ever go to Birmingham, Alabama, of all places in this world, know that you can find a hipster coffee house and some nice places to eat in downtown.

Still, my favorite place in downtown is this awesome antique store (mostly books and music) run by the most interesting man in the world and his wife.

His name is Jim Reed. He said that he had the business for 30 years now and that he is still selling a lot of books every week. I asked if he had many students coming to buy books. He said some, most are just looking for novels. I felt like there is still hope in the world, Pandora (not the radio) hasn’t died yet.

Look at all the books! I would love to work in an antique book store or at least own a house with walls made of books.
