A premier bookshop for locals, visitors and anyone who loves great books.
We specialize in a curated selection of new release and best selling fiction and nonfiction books (including graphic novels) for babies, children, teens and adults on subjects such as Texas (especially Waxahachie), trains, social justice issues, history, inspiration and personal growth, family and relationships, health and fitness, cooking and baking, sewing and crafting, art and architecture, decorating, and movies and TV. We also have games, puzzles and gifts and Spanish-language books for children and adults.
School is out! We are supporting local summer reading programs and have resources and activities to encourage your child to read all summer. Come see us inside Gingerbread Antiques in Waxahachie, Texas (310 South College Street), to check it out!
If you are a teacher or administrator, email us your summer reading and/or fall classroom lists, and then send your students our way or come see us (see address and map at the bottom of the page)! We want to stock the books and resources you need.
Students and school/college employees get 10% off their O'Brien's Bookshop purchase with school ID.
