Phone number out

22 Jul

Bindlestiff Books is open as usual. Unfortunately, our telephone number has been temporarily disconnected as a result of a dispute between our former and current service providers. We hope to have our phone number (215.662.5780) restored Tuesday. In the meantime, you should not leave voice mail on, or call, that number because we do not have access to it and will not be able to retrieve messages once service is restored.

Through Tuesday, the store can be called at 215.386.1750

We will be open Noon – 7 daily, except on Sunday, when we are open Noon – 5 pm
