On the site of the historic Falk's Market, Julie and Jeff Kinney have created a cornerstone in downtown Plainville with an indie bookstore, a café and an event space. An Unlikely Story Bookstore and Café is a beautiful community gathering place where you can meet amazing authors, enjoy breakfast or lunch or relax with your new book and a beer (or glass of wine).
Previously owned by Merrill Falk - a beloved general store owner – the market served the cornerstone for the community. Taking care to honor the building’s history, we’ve made it our mission to rejuvenate this sense of community.
Directly upstairs to An Unlikely Story is the Second Story. The Second Story hosts community events including readings, art workshops, yoga, improv classes and family friendly activities. It is also available for private functions.
Our hope is that everyone who visits An Unlikely Story will find it to be a special place, and that we’ll be able to help you use this space in a way that allows you to create happy memories here.
