Lost and Found Books Pop Up Bookstore

"Once you’ve fallen in love with books, their presence can make you feel at home anywhere, even in places where you shouldn't belong." --The Book of Lost Names by Kristin Harmel

Lost and Found Books is a pop-up book store that sells used books at storefronts and events in the local Wichita Falls area.

About Us

Lost and Found Books is a small, independently owned pop-up bookstore that sells used books in the local Wichita Falls area. We travel around to different local business storefronts and set up shop to bring you the gift of reading.

All of the books at Lost and Found Books have been curated from local library sales, garage sales, or donations from friends. To me, there is nothing better than the smell of an old book and the surprise of finding another reader's musings in the margin.

The name Lost and Found Books is a nod to those of us who needed to take a new, different path in life and the light that comes when it is found. It is an homage to that feeling you get when you find that perfect book you've been looking for in the bottom of a bin (that aha! moment). It is the feeling you have when you find a home away from what you think of as your home.

I hope Lost and Found Books can give you the happiness it is giving me. 

Support local business and read more books!

--Claire, Owner & Founder of Lost and Found Books

Meet the owner

Lost & Found Books is an independently owned pop-up used bookstore based out of Wichita Falls, TX.

Owning a bookstore has been a dream of the owner, Claire, for the last few years. After working in the Emergency Room for ten years as a Physician Assistant, including during the peaks of the COVID pandemic, she found herself diving into books more deeply than before and her love of reading was reignited.

After moving to the Wichita Falls area with her husband, a pilot in the US Air Force, her first question was "Where's the bookstore?"

Seeing a need for a local bookstore, she took the leap from medicine into the world of books. Her goal is to provide the community with affordable, well-loved books and bring the joy to reading to as many people as possible.

All of the books at Lost and Found Bookstore have been personally curated and chosen by Claire.
