About Us

Since opening its doors in 2011, Westside Stories Used Books has been offering a wide selection of quality used books, literary themed t shirts and other bookish treasures to the neighborhood.  The shop is owned by Joe and Jeanenne Petri.  

A vibrant retail corridor helps to anchor a neighborhood and create a sense of community among neighbors.  In 2019 we opened a second store, Gather & Game by Westside Stories, directly across the street from our shop, selling strategy board and card games. We are thrilled to be part of this lively pocket of Buffalo. 

Kids are always welcome to take two books from the overflowing free book bin located in the children’s section.  

The artwork that is our storefront was redesigned in 2017 by one of Buffalo's most talented designers and artists, Casey Millbrand and you can see more of his work here
