Hidden Gems: Capitol Hill Books

Video by Hatchet videographer Yara Bishara.

This is the first installment in our new series, “Hidden Gems.” Every other week, we’ll profile an interesting place in D.C. that you probably haven’t heard of.

Capitol Hill Books is a used bookstore located just two blocks from the Eastern Market Metro station. The cozy store’s walls are packed with first editions and rare books.

“It’s a kinetic experience, especially in used bookstores when they already have some character,” said employee Haley Simpkiss.
