Literary Salon Thursday, Jan. 24

18 Jan

Four Philly authors will read at the Dock Street Cannery Thursday, in a varied program including works of fiction and science history. We have three of their books on hand at Bindlestiff.

Winter hours

13 Jan

Bindlestiff hours will be a bit irregular for the next few weeks as we train some new volunteers, rejigger work schedules, and do some much-needed work in the basement (which doesn’t require closing, but it’s hard for the person doing it to staff at the same time).

We endeavor to be open Wednesday through Sunday, from Noon to 7 pm except on Sundays, when we close at 5. However, we do not have volunteers available for all of those hours, and many shifts are being scheduled on a day-by-day basis. We can pretty much guarantee that we will be open Thursdays from Noon to 3:30 p.m. and Saturdays from Noon to 7:00 p.m. We expect to be open more often than not on the other days for at least a part of our normal hours.

If you’re contemplating a special trip, perhaps it would be a good idea to phone first, at 215.662.5780. (But you shouldn’t necessarily expect to be phoned back quickly if you leave a voicemail; we’re not all that good at checking that.) Otherwise, if you’re walking by and we’re open, perhaps that would be a good time to pop in.
