We are now open our regular business hours, 10:00 to 5:30 every day. There will be some days when we do not buy for a while as we try to get things back in order (really, we should have closed for two weeks but didn't want to deprive you of our company for that long). Thank you for your patience while we finish up some lingering issues!
While we were able to get a number of things accomplished, most of them weren't even on the to-do list! The planned deep cleaning didn't really get done (cobwebs galore!) and there may actually be more dust now then there was when we started (drywall dust and sawdust and all other kinds of dust) but you will notice some substantial changes in the front part of the store. We have a new front counter, a newly exposed fire place and so a redesigned metaphysical section, and the kids room has been substantially changed. Please be sure to admire our new pink bathroom and purple paperback room--we think they turned out quite nicely!

New in the store: We are finally listing one of the world's most extensive collections of Erle Stanley Gardner's works. See the E.S.G. page for info. We are also in the process of listing a large collection of Godey's Lady's Books.
It's been a while now since we acquired the cockpit from a 1967 Boeing 727-100 aircraft. This aircraft section has been placed in the parking lot next to the building on the north side. The plane cannot be accessed by customers from the inside of the shop; we were able bring it in but we aren't able to bring it up to code enough to open it to visitors. This cockpit does make a unique (and a bit drafty) office. It was quite the process getting it in! Here is a brief video showing the tail end of the process with the forklift. It's not the most exciting watching--but it is interesting!
