Welcome to Lighthouse Books, ABAA! We're thrilled to be in Dade City!


We are a family run shop that has served book lovers for more than forty-three years. We have recently moved to larger quarters in Dade City - a town in central Florida known for its antiques stores and comfortable cafes. There, we are located at the corners of Church Avenue and 5th Street: 14046 5th Street.


We specialize in books of a scholarly nature, particularly Florida History, Americana, and military history, but carry a broad range of general used and secondhand books, and a small gallery of prints and maps.


We offer certified appraisal services, and are members of the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America, The International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, and the Florida Antiquarian Booksellers' Association.


As a lover of old books, you may enjoy articles we've posted to our blog.


Only a relatively small portion of our books are listed online. We invite you to call or email us with your author, title, or subject requests: (727) 822-3278 or [email protected] We'll gladly ship the books to your home or provide curbside pick-up. In addition to taking online and telephone orders, our shop is open for regular business hours, Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.


Our new large, open floor-plan makes social distancing easy and pleasant & we are taking extra precautions to keep your shopping experience safe and comfortable.


We appreciate your continued patronage, as always!
