An Unlikely Story is a bookstore and Café located in Plainville, Mass. It’s just the cutest little old timey/hip bookstore that gives a straight nod right to the heritage of the location. Originally built to be a Market in the mid 1800’s this building has been several things-a general store, a tea room and a restaurant. The store is owned by the Kinney’s author of the Wimpy Kid Book Series. One look inside and it’s like you’ve stepped back inside.
The store has books galore, fun toys-you know the really cool stuff you can’t find at a big box store, a cafe and an event space upstairs. The bookstore hosts a ton of special events including crafts for all ages, author visits-so so many of these, and yoga, story time and even an open mic night-check out their insane upcoming events calendar for all the details. You can also get a free tour.
Make sure you add this on your list of places to stop and bring your money because you will want to buy everything! There is parking behind the store and also across the street!
Unlikely Story is a cute and quirky little place that’s a great stop for old and young alike. Add it to your list the next time you’re in Eastern Massachusetts!
