Open 7 Days! (Check social media for holiday closures)
We wouldn't be here without YOU. How lucky we are to live in a town that has long supported and celebrated a local, independent bookstore. First, Bath Bookstore, then The Mustard Seed Bookstore, and now Mockingbird Bookshop where we will continue providing the best quality and selection of books.
Jeff and Terri Schurz moved to Bath, Maine, from Colorado Springs, Colorado, with their children Cade and Olivia in 2014. Ready for adventure and change they headed from a big, landlocked city to the sweetest small town near the coast and couldn't be happier. Terri worked for Julie Shea, the owner of The Mustard Seed Bookstore for 4 years, and when Julie was ready to retire, Terri and Jeff decided to embark on yet another adventure.
The Mustard Seed Bookstore has been a place of joy for countless people, and Terri and Jeff are dedicated to continuing that same quality of care and service to everyone who walks through the door. Our mission is to curate a beautiful, quality and diverse selection of books for people of all ages and interests so that everyone can find something to read. We want this to be a space where everyone feels a sense of belonging. If you don't find a book to love, we will happily order one just for you. We hope you will enjoy the variety of gifts, cards, stationary and miscellany as well. Whether you know just what you want or would simply like to browse around a peaceful shop, you will be welcomed. Come in for a book or gift and stay for a cup of coffee or tea. We can't wait to meet you!
Due to staffing changes please note the updates to our hours.
