About Us

Welcome to the Trails End Bookstore

The independent bookstore of the Methow Valley

Featuring a large and well curated selection of books, games, puzzles and gift items.


Trails End Bookstore has had a presence in this historic western town of Winthrop for over 25 years. Since then it has gone through a few owners, growth spurts and relocations within town.

Owners Christine Janikowski have continued this trend recently by moving the store to a larger location, just a few doors down from its former storefront. This was fulfilling our vision of providing an expanded space with bright windows, comfortable chairs and couches to invite our community and visitors to peruse a book, try a cup of espresso and find a quiet spot to enjoy both.

We are offering a wide variety of books, from Bestsellers to Nature, Travel to Young Readers. Proudly featuring a wide selection of local authors and PNW authors. With a selection of over 2000 titles, you will sure find what you are looking for.  Do not miss our fabulous kid’s corner, complete with train sets, stuffed toys and early childhood games.

Come on in and meet our outstanding store manager Abilene Hagee and our wonderful staff of book lovers who will gladly assist you with a selection of memorable reads. As members of the American Booksellers Association along with IndieBound, we are excited to share our love of books with you. We are sure, you’ll find our growing catalog of books as exciting as we do. Tell us some of your favorites!


We’ll see you soon
