Books & Puzzles for All Ages

26 Categories of Books in the Shop

One large room is filled with books and puzzles for all ages. The books are sorted into 26 categories so you can easily find your favorite mysteries, best sellers, cookbooks, children’s books, and coffee table books. Here is a sample of more than 2,000 items that will be available in the Books & Puzzles Shop at the Bazaar on Sept. 30, 9 am – 3:00 pm.

Best Sellers


So far, there is only one copy of the Batavia Home Town Cookbook with recipes from 1833 -1983. If you are looking for it, get there at 9:00 am. 


Coffee Table Books


There are a lot of used puzzles of various sizes to browse. Note: Because they are donated, we cannot guarantee that each puzzle is complete. But they are definitely priced to sell.  

Resident Volunteers in the Book Shop

These residents have been working since May, sorting and prepping the high volume of books that have been donated this year.

Holmstad Bazaar Bake Shop

Get There Early!

The Bake Shop will be filled with irresistible choices when the Bazaar opens at 9:00 am on September 30 but is generally empty by 12:30 pm so get there early! One of the specialties of this Swedish community is Cardamom Bread but you’ll find all sorts of cookies, cakes, and breads.

It takes several residents to help sell baked goods. This resident is there to assist customers and answer questions about the Swedish Cardamom Bread loaves.
