Wallace Books


Julie Wallace


Wallace Books is your neighborhood "Shop-Around-the-Corner" bookstore.

You'll find a treasure for every reader nestled in our 1930s house on the corner of SE Milwaukie and SE Knapp, where we've been located for 21 years. Hot new releases, great used classics, and quirky vintage finds are tucked into every nook and cranny--let's just say, we're known for our economical use of space!

Floor-to-ceiling book storage, crates filled with collections by classic authors, and shelves packed double-deep make this the perfect store for anyone who loves to while away a lazy afternoon browsing for eclectic finds or old favorites. But don't let that overwhelm you! If you're looking for something specific or need a recommendation, our friendly, knowledgeable staff are here to help you hunt down the perfect read.

Why we love Sellwood

Sellwood has that small-town feel in the heart of the big city: everybody knows everybody and works hard to give back to the community.
