We plan on further expanding hours in December.

Holiday Hours

This Christmas week, Bindlestiff will open daily through Saturday at Noon, but will close early most days (around 3:30 or 4). We may be open later, feel free to check in at 215.662.5780.

We will be open Saturday, Noon – 7 p.m. We will open New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31, from Noon – 4:00 p.m., closing early for our first-ever Bindlestaffers Holiday Party.

We hope to resume regular hours on January 2. However, we are still organizing the schedule given holidays and other disruptions. Weekday hours might be a bit irregular for the next week or two; we will be open our regular schedule on weekends.

Dollar Stroll Thursday

31 Aug

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 closed Memorial Day weekend

21 May

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.

Snowstorm hours

22 Jan

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…

Holiday Hours

20 Nov

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.
