Small Business Saturday

Show your support for small business by shopping at local stores on the Saturday after Thanksgiving (the day after Black Friday).

Each year, on the Saturday after Thanksgiving we run a huge book sale (for instance, last year, our entire stock of used books was half off normal prices). Visit us in November 2015 for the next one.
