  • All of our Out of Print t-shirts, sweaters, and scarves are 20% off.
  • Spend $50 or more and get a Theo chocolate bar FREE. Or,

  • We’ll also be doing a book giveaway and taking donations for Homeward Alliance. 

We're also doing a receipt exchange with several of our friends in Old Town! If you bring us your reciept from your April 27th purchases at Happy Lucky's Teahouse, FoCo DoCo, or Nuance Chocolate, you'll get 10% off the most expensive book in your stack. If you take your receipt from us to any of them, you'll get: 

  • 20% off your purchase at FoCo DoCo,  
  • Tea for Two at Happy Lucky's if you give them your coupon at time of purchase,
  • And if you're one of the first 5 customers to spend $100 here at the bookstore, and take your receipt to Nuance, you'll qualify for a 2-for-1 Flight of Chocolate

We'll also be doing something special for our social media followers, so keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram on the day of to get in on one last fun, IBD shenanigan! 

Since its inception, more than 200 authors have demonstrated their support for independent bookstores by donating their work for Bookstore Day. The first Indie Bookstore Day was held in 2014 and became a national event the following year. It is an event that not only celebrates local, independent bookstores, but the importance of all local businesses and a supportive community. We hope you’ll stop by!
