The Literary Wonders at The Literary Lounge: A Bespoke Journey with Terri Reynolds and Shelby Giltz

Discover the Enchanting World of Books at The Literary Lounge

Nestled in the heart of Jacksonville, FL, at 1080 Edgewood Ave S, Unit 5, The Literary Lounge stands as a testament to the enduring love of reading shared by co-owners and mother-daughter duo, Shelby Giltz and Terri Reynolds. This bookstore isn't just a business; it's the culmination of a family's lifelong passion for books and a dream transformed into reality.

The Origin of a Dream: From Pop-Ups to Permanent

The journey of Shelby and Terri is nothing short of inspiring. After months of toting books to various pop-up locations, they yearned for a more permanent space to share their love for literature. Their patience paid off when they discovered the perfect spot on Edgewood Avenue. This location was not just a space; it was a canvas to bring their dream to life.

A Creative Haven: The Lounge Room

Ask Terri and Shelby about their favorite creation, and they'll point to the lounge room at The Literary Lounge. More than just a part of the bookstore, it's a sanctuary for book lovers, a creative use of space that invites readers to immerse themselves in the world of words.

The Literary Lounge: A Hub for Collaboration and Community

Collaboration is at the heart of The Literary Lounge's ethos. Shelby and Terri's vision extends beyond selling books; it's about creating a community. This vision aligns perfectly with their aspirations to work alongside Bespoke House members, fostering a mutual awareness and appreciation for the arts.
