Briars & Brambles Books is a dream come true for owner & part-time Windham resident, Jen Schwartz. Jen has combined her love of books (BA in English and MA in school administration) - she’s a former English teacher and school dean - with her experience as a long-time library volunteer and past library board president to create an inviting, knowledgeable and professional atmosphere.
Jen’s hand-picked team includes:
A retiree who adores golfing and is a rare-book aficionado
A self-trained animal rescuer and chicken farmer, who is also a new mom
A home-school mother and teacher
A nature lover and aspiring photographer
The Briars & Brambles team understands that being a bookseller involves so much more than simply “selling books” and is committed to providing unparalleled personal attention.
The Briars & Brambles team takes pride in offering personal suggestions and regularly updates the Staff Picks section of the store.
Briars & Brambles offers internships for high school students. Interns gain intimate knowledge and practical experience working in a small independently owned retail store. If you are interested in applying, please email us for more information.
