The ever-changing Downtown Credo’s North Quarter Market just north of downtown has a new addition to its coffee shop offerings; a book store.

Zeppelin Books (Instagram | Website) is a new independent book shop that’s currently in a soft-open phase at 885 North Orange Avenue [GMap], activating shelves that have seen a number of different operators in the years since Credo opened there, including groceries from The Farmacy (Facebook), houseplants from Porch Therapy (Website), and whimsical pieces by woodworker Blair Sligar’s Hog Eat Hog (Facebook), among others.

The shop is owned by husband and wife team, Alex Gurtis and Andrea Penuela, and currently features a curated collection of over 100 handpicked titles, including local authors and indie publishers.

A grand opening event is scheduled for Saturday, August 6, at 7 p.m. and will feature a celebration of author Erin Slaughter’s newest book, The Sorrow Festival, and will feature readings by Tyler Gillespie and Laurie Uttich. Click HERE to RSVP for the free event.

Zeppelin Books is currently open 7 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday to Friday, and 8 a.m.-3 p.m Saturday.
