Happy Holidays, everyone! 


Today was our last day of trading in books and movies until mid-January (check back for a firm date), so that we may better serve you as you shop for loved ones (including yourself!) this season. 

HOWEVER, if you have a small stack (let's say 10 or fewer) of books that we are still carrying new or that are current best sellers, we will be glad to trade for those as it takes practically no time at all, and indeed we do need to keep our New Arrivals area fresh & full!


Also, when we start back up again, our buying hours will have shifted slightly, hopefully this time for good! They will be 11 am to 2 pm and 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm daily. Hopefully this makes it a little easier for some of you to get here after work, and still allows our buyers time to take a meal break :) Thanks for understanding! 


Our holiday schedule is as follows: 


CHRISTMAS EVE - 10 am - 6pm


NEW YEAR'S EVE - 11am - 6 pm



Thank you SO MUCH for thinking of us as you make your shopping rounds! We are incredibly grateful for all the support, and aim to make our community proud!
