FoxTale has a no refund policy on any product, class, event or activity.  We will gladly exchange or issue a store credit. 

A Note on Shipping:

USPS is currently experiencing an extraordinary volume of packages and shipping times are severely delayed, especially when using Media Mail. Here at FoxTale Book Shoppe we are getting your orders processed as quickly as we can, but once your books are in the USPS system we have no control over how quickly your order gets to you. We are encouraging customers to use Priority Mail. Packages shipped Priority are insured and we are seeing more reliable shipping times and tracking.

We are so thankful for everyone choosing to shop with us and truly appreciate your patience as we navigate this uncertainty.

Please stay safe and healthy.

Our Customers Love Us!

Been coming to this store since it opened! It feels like home when you walk in! They are huge supporters of local writers and other small businesses. Very proud to have such great store with a phenomenal team in my town!!!!

~ Layne Livingston

In an era where so few independent bookstores remain, FoxTale is that special place where the owners really care about the authors, their books, their customers and the local community. The entire team has created such a warm and welcoming environment. My mom and I find something unique each and every time we go. When I was traveling I purchased iBooks to read while on the road. But now that I'm at home, I'm so glad to be back to reading a real hardcover book.

Love, love this place and all events they have for kids, we never miss one!

~ Tatiana S. Boxa

FoxTale is a rare jewel in a land of ash. An independent powerhouse, they have never lost their cool. This bookstore has been around for years, and supports many local literary events. It is no accident the people refuse to let FoxTale go the way of the dodo. Please show them your support and drop in on them today.

I spent three evenings at FoxTale with Mary Alice Monroe, Mary Kay Andrews and Karen White! I had such a good time and absolutely love this store, their employees and the many people I met there! I will be back (even with it being 4-5 hours from home)!

~ Chelle Breure

We travelled just a few miles from Irvine, CA so Alexandra Junell and her book loving friends from Georgia and Tennessee could meet up at the Fox Tale Book Shoppe! Such a quaint and well stocked shoppe! Was sad that it was closed at 5:15 pm when I popped in again hoping to buy a cute mug and fox ornament! Worth the trip.
