One of the largest independent bookstores in the Southeast, Haslam's was frequented by Jack Kerouac as he spent the last years of his life in St. Petersburg. Kerouac apparently disapproved of the alphabetical placement of his books on the bottom shelf, so he would move them up to eye level.

Although some people claim that Kerouac's ghost still haunts the store, a cat named Teacup guards steadfastly against intruders, both physical and supernatural.
