Hi, I’m Abby!


I launched Shelves Bookstore in June 2019 and have been serving as Charlotte’s friendly neighborhood bookseller ever since. In addition to being my dream come true, Shelves is a mobile pop-up bookstore that partners with other small businesses that have a brick & mortar presence in the Charlotte Metro area. We are a general interest bookstore committed to educating families and bookworms of all ages through a curated selection of diverse stories. Around here we believe that reading is a lifestyle and are always encouraging our customers to get comfortable with being uncomfortable in order to grow. Because when it’s all said and done, a book can save just about anyone.

Thank you for visiting my store! Remember we’re building this together, shelf by shelf.
