Browsing & Checkout Tips:

Thanks so much for checking out our new online store!


When reviewing the books on the site, please keep an eye on the text to the right of the book cover:

  • "Usually Ship in 1-5 Days" means these books are readily available! We'll ship this to you or hold them for you at the store.
  • "Backordered" titles will be delayed, sometimes significiantly. We may or may not have a date from our distributor as to when we can expect it back in stock. 
  • For anything you can't find, it's always possible that we have it used in the shop--if you'd like us to check, give us a ring during business hours or send us an email at


During the checkout process, there are a few important things to know!

  • To Use a Gift Card or Membership: During checkout, please skip "Delivery Information" and instead select the "Store Pickup" option. Under payment information, choose "Pay at Store." PLEASE LET US KNOW IN THE ORDER COMMENTS THAT YOU ARE PAYING VIA GIFT CARD. Please also highlight if you do, in fact, want your order shipped. Otherwise we will assume all local orders from members are for store pickup moving forward. When we receive the order, we'll charge against your gift card on file or reach out to you for details. If you have a physical plastic gift card, you may also include your gift card number in the order comments field for fastest service.
