We are at it AGAIN! Our ceiling renovations begin January 22nd and should last a couple of weeks (???) We are currently closed for browsing, but booksellers will be here from NOON to 4:00 pm daily to fill online orders, answer phone calls, and for back-door/alley pick-ups! Sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. We hope to see you soon under our higher ceilings and updated lighting!
