How Did The Book Peddler Get Started?
The Book Peddler first opened in 2005. I had always loved books and helping match books with readers. When I was nearing my retirement from being a high school guidance counselor I began book scouting and selling books online. When a spot opened up to have a physical store in White Salmon I nervously accepted the challenge. In 2009 the store moved across to the sunny side of Jewett street to its current expanded location.

My name is Joyce FitzSimmons and I have been a White Salmon resident for 35+ years. My husband and I have two grown daughters and two wonderful grandsons. When I am not running the store we enjoy traveling and spending time with our family.
