Chamblin’s Uptown is a new, used and rare bookseller and café in downtown Jacksonville. The longtime retailer stocks a hefty supply of second-hand novels, and offers a generous book trade-in and purchasing policy. Many other rare tomes are tucked away for discerning readers, while only a small supply of the books on hand at Chamblin’s are brand new. Pull up a seat in the outdoor patio and order an espresso while you peruse a dog-eared page or two, or simply enjoy the views of Hemming Plaza. An outdoor mural draws the eye in, an old but functional piano sits out front, and the simple indoor/outdoor seating arrangement makes this book mine feel like a warm hug for literature lovers. Offering croissants and muffins for breakfast, tuna wraps, veggie wraps and homemade soups for lunch, the café, with its paper lanterns, globe lighting and floor-to-ceiling books, makes Chamblin’s a community gem.
Lina M.'s natural, handmade soaps, soaks, salts, scrubs, and creams are whipped up weekly in small batches to ensure that skin-parched patrons receive the freshest products possible. Products tickle the nose's tongue's taste buds with light aromatics such as Oasis, a clean, summery fragrance, or signature scent Lina, a feminine bouquet of wisteria and lilac. The healthful bath brigade includes a 4-ounce honey and crème bath and facial bar made with goat's milk, oatmeal, natural raw honey, shea butter, and olive and aloe vera oil ($7) to moisturize a whole soul-sack from top to toe, whereas 1-ounce Shea to Go travel tins provide easy access to concentrated dollops of creamy African shea butter for scratchy, dry patches. Like a spork, the mineral bubble bath salt ($7) combines the form and function of two essential wares—the skin-softening salt soak and the frothy, prophetic nature of a cauldron's worth of bubble bath. With all items at $7.98 or less, Lina M.'s brand of wholesome luxury is as affordable as it is indulgent.
