February 8, 2019. Our latest new arrivals list of 25 wonderful, rare and probably underpriced items is now available here. At the shop this week, some buys from around town including weird right-wing pamphlets from the 1940s, literature, Judaica, Pittsburgh books, and some stuff that's been gathering around our house - mysteries and other literature that I've been reading and now ready to let go. Some come on down!
