Port Gamble added two new businesses in the last few weeks.
No. 7 Books and psychic medium Ankhasha Amenti each celebrated grand openings Wednesday, according to a Port Gamble news release. Both are right at home in a town that’s recently earned a reputation for supernatural happenings as well as its rich history.
No. 7 Books
The new, used and rare bookstore is the second location opened by owners Danya Simkus and Rik Scott. The store opened in House No. 7, which was built in 1863.
Spanning six rooms, the store carries hard-to-find books on wide-ranging topics. Staff picks and antiques are displayed in the entrance. The kitchen is stocked with cookbooks and gardening manuals. A special “Houdini” room houses titles on everything from religion to the supernatural.
A fourth room has a weighty collection of political science texts, memoirs and biographies. Lighter fare is found in a fifth room full of paperbacks. The sixth room is a writers room, where aspiring authors can practice their craft.
