FAYETTEVILLE, AR -- A Fayetteville institution has landed on a list of worldwide treasures! The Dickson Street Bookshop has been charming readers since 1978, and popular website Buzzfeed has taken notice. The site named the Bookshop one of its "17 Bookstores That Will Literally Change Your Life."

The Dickson Street Bookshop joins stores from cities across the U.S., like Boston & San Francisco, as well as shops from Greece, Brazil and China.

"We feel really honored to be on the list with a bunch of amazing book stores," says store manager Suedie Hallelkins.

Buzzfeed credits the Bookshop's large selection of rare and out-of-print books, as well as its diversity as reasons for placing it on the list.

"We've just got an amazing collection," Hallelkins says. "We have books on every subject, and people come here and often dig treasures out of places that we haven't seen the book in maybe 20 years and they've found it somewhere."
