-- Laurie Koselke opened The Bookworm in 1974 in downtown Wanatah, Indiana. She’s kept the business in town all these years but is now based in a new location at 11576 W US Hwy 30 since July of 2011. Initially the business started as a bookstore. The intellectual exchanges were valuable for Koselke during the period when her children were young. It has since evolved to include a fantastic selection of art, antiques, and so much more.
The Bookworm participates in the antique shows held by Engstrom’s Auctions and has maintained a booth at the Coachman antique mall in LaPorte. They’re considering holding their own winter sale in a vacant unit of West Park Terrace in Wanatah. This complex is home to The Bookworm along with Flowers & Such and Studio 46390, which makes for a great offering of shops.
The store is focused on unique and different things that are special to the right set of eyes. “I’m not interested in anything ordinary at all,” Laurie quipped. She is always on the lookout for “nonfiction [books] before the 1870’s,” before adding, “condition is very important to me.” They don’t carry textbooks, self-help or how-to but there’s certainly something you’ll like amongst The Bookworm’s 15,000 books!
