The Big Move

*Check this page often for updates on our move to 2nd St.*

Construction is underway on the renovations to our new home! Our Main Street location is now closed (Wheatgrass Gifts is still open), but during this closure our entire inventory of great used, new and antiquarian books is available here.

If you’re looking for new books that we don’t have in stock, please have a look at our Bookshop.org storefront for a wonderful alternative to Amazon that actually supports independent bookstores like ours, or Email us for help with special orders.

We can’t wait to share our new home with you. Stay tuned for updates!

July 20 update: Renovation work continues. The framing and plumbing rough-in are complete, and work has begun on the electrical and audio wiring. The sheetrockers come next. In the meantime, if you’re missing browsing our shelves for your next good read, the next best thing is still an option: explore our collection online here.

All of our contractors have been swamped with work this summer, and we want to thank them for finding a way to prioritize our bookstore. It’s going to be an amazing space — we can’t wait to invite you all in!

May 21 update: With the help of our amazing volunteers, Mike Johnson, John Henry Haseltine, Dan Rice, Maggie Anderson, Marlin Brokaw, Mary Clare, Chris Brookhart, Bob Schleicher, David Buth, Vanessa Chavarriaga and Dain Rodwell, we managed to move all of our books (about 20,000), shelving units, display units, etc. into storage! During this time, the Book Mover 1000 was upgraded to the Book Mover 2000. Here are clips of it in action:

May 5 update: The books are mostly boxed up and transportation to the new space has begun. While construction is happening upstairs, we’re storing some 15,000 books in our basement. The thought of carrying that many heavy boxes down a flight of steps inspired Marc to develop our “Book Mover 1000” (patent-pending).
