Flying Beagle Books is a second-hand bookshop in the artistic, eclectic, creative community of Saxapahaw, North Carolina. We offer fun and informative books, music, and locally made crafts at a village level for global thinkers. Come on by for a chat, set a spell and meet Roswell The Flying Beagle Himself. We are a local 'Mom & Pop' business and truly love our ties to the community and we are always happy to make new friends. See you on Saturdays in Saxapahaw!
We are very happy to announce that we are in the process of moving out of our lovely but too small bookshop for a brief winter season. We will be at the Saxapahaw Holiday Market this Christmas, and then re-open in a new and much more accommodating location this spring. You can continue to support local by using the search option at the top of the page to find your books through us, or using the 'used' option on Amazon, where you will likely be purchasing from another small business even if you don't find a Flying Beagle Books copy.
Thank you so much for supporting local bookshops and you can keep up with our progress here on our website or on our Facebook page. Keep reading, Saxapahaw!
We have over 4,000 books in stock, which we carefully select to find interesting stories and relevant content in quality condition. We keep our store at strict humidity and air quality standards to keep each and every book in it's best possible condition.
If you are looking for a good novel, a classic story or an interesting how-to on gardening, we have something for you. From Cook Books to U.F.O.'s, our quality of content far outweighs the quantity of books on the shelves.
Until we have moved into our new space, you can always search our inventory using the box at the top of this page to order online.
Flying Beagle Books hoodies are in!

Do you have a favorite author? Having trouble finding a certain book? We filter through tens of thousands of books each month to select our stock and we'd be more than happy to keep an eye out for anything you're looking for. Since we are not ordering directly from a supplier, we cannot guarantee we will find every book on your wishlist, but we will give our best efforts to help you find exactly what you want.
Email us at Flying Beagle Books and we will add your requests.
Here on the rural banks of the Haw River, is the community of Saxapahaw. We may be a small village, but we are full of big ideas. Our local five star gas station has some of the best food you'll find in North Carolina, and our Euro style gastro-pub will amaze you with local brews and pub fare. The Haw River Ballroom and Cup 22 coffee house are perfect for lounging during the day and great music at night. Right at the crossroads by the river you will find the Haw River Canoe and Kayak Company who would love to take you for a paddle down the Haw. Haw River Farmhouse Ales is now open, producing some of the finest craft beers available in the state, and their tasting room is almost always open. Left Bank Butchery is our local whole-animal butcher, who specializes in meat from local farms and old-world style cuts not available at your chain groceries.
Don't forget, every Wednesday at The Eddy Pub in Saxapahaw is Trivia Night! Most Wednesdays we will be there playing along with you and once a month or so we guest host. Prizes include a $25 gift certificate for the Eddy, a free dessert, and a $5 gift chip for Flying Beagle Books!
