Marble City Books is an online and pop-up, woman-owned indie bookstore based in New York's North Country.

Our mission is to enable book addicts, bookworms, or the fancier name: bibliophile. Just smell that vanilla. A common smell of old books, says the International League for Antiquarian Booksellers, is a hint of vanilla: “Lignin, which is present in all wood-based paper, is closely related to vanillin. As it breaks down, the lignin grants that faint vanilla scent.”
