Thursday is the Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll, and Bindlestiff will be open late for the occasion with our normal selection of books inside, and a wide variety of new books (some other stuff too) available outside for just $1.
Bindlestiff Books will be closed Sunday, May 29, and Monday, May 30, for the Memorial Day holiday — but also to do needed repairs to our entryway. We will resume our normal hours (Noon – 7, Monday through Saturday; Noon – 5 Sunday) on Tuesday.
They are projecting lots of snow for Saturday, but one never knows exactly what will transpire. Our plan is to open Saturday at Noon, like usual. SEPTA has announced that they’re shutting down busses and trollies for the day, so our second shift staffer won’t be able to make it in. But as long as we have customers, we should be able to keep open — but we might go sledding if no one’s up and about, so give a call before making a special trip: 215.662.5780.
We expect to be open Noon to 5, as usual, on Sunday, assuming there’s still power and sidewalks are passable…
Bindlestiff Books will open late Saturday, Nov. 21, due to a scheduling conflict. We will be open by 3:00 pm, and hope to open earlier. Call 215.662.5780 to verify that we have opened. We will close at 7:00 p.m. as usual, and will be open Sunday, Noon to 5.
We will be closed Thanksgiving Day, but otherwise should be open Noon to 7 (to 5 on Sunday) through the holdiday weekend.
