My friend and I went here on a Friday night. We spent about an hour looking around. Wasn't cluttered with people or book shelves. Connected to the building is the art gallery. Outside the bookstore is a pond with a big live turtle and and small waterfall. There's a dining area in the middle of the bookstore-tables and chairs set up. Also there is a coffee snack bar near the entrance. There's a 2nd floor where childrens books are sold. Sells 'literature,' fiction, real-life, political(barack obama and mcclaine), romance. Fun place to go.

This is a very unique bookstore... it's like an old fashioned cottage and it has a very homey feel. You can sit around and browse the books and gifts while enjoying a decent cup of coffee. They've got games on the tables that you can play and it's just a relaxing place to be... it's located in Seaport Village, so the scenery is just nice. The young people that work there are always friendly and don't mind at all that you just browse around forever.

You can see Wyland's work throughout the city on the sides of buildings, or you can come to his gallery. There are many, beautiful original works of art being sold here. Most of his artwork features sea animal and sea scenes. The works of art are very expensive, but nice to look at in the gallery.

A lot of fantastic looking art, but for someone like me who doesn't have a lot of money to throw around, that's all it is. A lot of fantastic LOOKING art, not much I can afford. If you're someone with money to spend on great art though, they ahve some very unique pieces such as three d paintings and elegant looking sculptures.

This place is a sweet little cottage-like book/gift/coffee shop. It's very small inside, but there's wall to wall...stuff. If you're visiting Seaport Village definitely stop in; the coffee is really delicious and you can entertain yourself with all the weird and random items that are placed all around the store. Upstairs is the children's book and magazine area - and is also a nice spot (if it's not too busy) to sit and sip.

Upstart Crow is a unique place to browse and shop. It carries a wide selection of books in all genres, and also carries lots of fun non-book items. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Prices are standard for the market, and they'll validate your parking for two hours if you purchase something in the store.

Upstart Crow is great. Apart from a quirky selection and quirkier non-book items (check out the pins and buttons near the back check-out counter, they are hilarious), the store has great atmosphere. The coffee is pretty good, and the tables are usually full, especially on weekends. A great alternative to some of the more tourist-oriented offerings of Seaport Village.

PROS: Fun environment, good coffee, free parking if you buy something
CONS: You have to dodge tourists to get there...
