On the site of the historic Falk's Market, Julie and Jeff Kinney created a cornerstone in downtown Plainville with an independent bookstore, a café, and an event space. An Unlikely Story Bookstore and Café is a community gathering place for meeting authors, eating breakfast or lunch, or relaxing with a new book and a beer or glass of wine. Directly upstairs to An Unlikely Story is the Second Story. The Second Story hosts community events including readings, jewelry workshops, yoga, karaoke, wine tastings, game nights for families, and is also available for private functions.
