About Us


Molly’s is a family owned and operated second-hand book and record store, located in the heart of Philly’s historic Italian Market.    People are often surprised to find us here, in the middle of all the fruit stands, bodegas, butcher and cheese shops, but we’re quite comfortable in the mix.  The store is small but packed with time-honored classics and peppered with odd and interesting gems. Co-owners (and newlyweds!) Molly Russakoff and Joe Ankenbrand are out 2, 3, 4 days a week combing the mid-Atlantic states for books and records to improve and freshen the selection.   The inventory is thoughtfully selected, well organized and reasonably priced, and it’s all backed up by good old-fashioned customer service. If Molly or Joe are not in the store, they are usually a phone call away to answer questions or address concerns.  We love to peruse independent shops ourselves and want our customers to have a great browsing and buying experience with every visit.
