About/Hours

Bindlestiff Books is a volunteer-run neighborhood bookstore in West Philadelphia, with a carefully selected array of new and discounted (but still new) books. We have children’s books, literary fiction, graphic novels, art, cookbooks, history, labor studies, politics, and much more.

We’re at 4530 Baltimore Avenue, Philadelphia PA 19143, just two blocks from Clark Park. Phone number: 215.662.5780; email: bindlestiff.bookstore@gmail.com

Store Hours:

  • Mondays, Closed
  • Tuesdays, Closed*
  • Wednesdays, Noon – 7:00 p.m.
  • Thursdays, Noon – 7:00 p.m.*
  • Fridays, Noon – 7:00 p.m.
  • Saturdays, Noon – 7:00 p.m.
  • Sundays, Noon – 5:00 p.m.

(*)We’re struggling with Tuesdays (all day) and Thursday closings (Noon – 3:30 is reliably covered) just now; open as often as not, but it might make sense to check first. Sometimes we’re here other times as well, so feel free to give us a call or just drop by.

Here’s a link to a blog with photos from our opening, including the original mosaic that distinguishes our facade: http://psalmboxkey.com/2012/01/14/joy-of-books-bindlestiff-books-in-west-philly/.

Special Orders: If we don’t have a book in stock, we’re glad to order it for you. We can get most books in in a week or two, assuming they’re still in print.

Interested in volunteering? We always need staffers, but there are also possibilities to organize readings or other events. We’re glad to hear your ideas as well.
