Presidents' Day Weekend 2024 Vintage Book Sale!

Presidents' Day Weekend 2024 Vintage Book Sale!

Hello Everyone!

I'm happy to write with more sales to round out February.  It was a delight to have so many of you visit last month for our media sale and our half-off sale of children's books.  I've had in my mind to host a similar half-off sale for vintage books for some time, and I felt encouraged by your warm response.  I suspect we will hold something like these two sales annually in the cold months of the early year, when some encouragement is needed to visit bookstores--which really are--once you're there--a very nice place to be on a winter's day. 

Over Presidents' Day weekend, we'll reduce all of our vintage book collection, which we more-or-less define as pre-1970, to be half of it's marked price.  Our vintage books are good deals anyway.  We've always specialized in the inexpensive vintage titles with interesting content in interesting (to us) genres.  So, now you can really load them up by the bagful, I feel.  With our long closure, I continue to have excellent material reserved that we've selected and we are working to quickly price and get into our storefront.  That means, like our children's sale last month, we'll have both older stock (true "clearance" material) and fresh never-presented stock (not your typical clearance material but exciting and festive to share!). 

Also, of course, we're in a historic soap factory, so the whole experience is sort of like library LARPing.
