About Us

Books and Bakery LLC started as a far away dream. At the start of 2021, we took the leap and decided to make our dream come true. Books and Bakery, from there took it's start. The store is a used bookstore that sells: used books, new books, journals, notebooks, notepads, mugs, board games, puzzles, book accessories, literary candles, and so much more!

We are a small, family owned business located in Carroll, IA. McKenzie Crawford owns and operates the shop. Her brother, Alex Crawford, helps her with the day to day operations as well. McKenzie and Alex's mother, Nichole, is the store manager and manages the store Monday-Friday. Learn more about the crew on our Meet the Team page.
