Hours

16 May

We strive to be open Tuesday – Saturday, Noon to 7, and Sunday Noon to 5.

Tuesdays & Wednesdays are a bit shaky for the next couple of weeks — we’re probably open at least part of the day, but if you’re making a special trip it might make sense to check first.

Graphic Novels for Children

5 Oct

Our window features graphic novels for children by NoBrow Press and their imprint Flying Eye Books. Several of these titles are now in the Penn Alexander and Henry Lea public schools in West Philadelphia as part of the A Book A Day program sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania Libraries (and for which Bindlestiff supplies the books). We also have a free NoBrown children’s comic book and several postcards available while supplies last.
