Welcome to the Chatham Bookstore
Community through books
We offer current and classic books for all ages and a fine selection of art supplies. We invite you to visit our store and be a supporter of Main Street, Chatham, New York.
In visits to Australia over the past ten years, Spencertown artist Wendy Holmes Noyes has recorded images of “alleyways, doors, brick walls…a kind of endless outdoor museum.” These “Street Paintings Mostly from Melbourne” will be on exhibit at the bookstore.

Sally Bauer Block will show selected oil paintings from the past few years. Sally studied at Goddard College and Yale where she painted under the stewardship of Josef Albers. She says, “Most people would consider my paintings abstract, but to me they are landscapes. I see trees.”
In 1971, she and her husband established the Handcrafters Shop, an art supply and contemporary American crafts store on Main Street in Chatham, which they operated for nearly thirty years.
