Our end of the semester “Food For Fines” starts this Wednesday, April 24th – Monday, April 29th.
How it works: You bring in a canned food* and we forgive $2 for each can.

Good luck with your finals!
Prices are set to move, move, move! All the magazines are free – including Artforums and Communication Arts. Prime collage material, people.
So come on down – sale ends tomorrow.
Well, there’s really just one secret, and that is we still have shelves of books in the back that we are putting out as space clears on the sale tables. That means if you have not visited yet or have, there’s still a chance to get cool stuff that has not been available before at our bargain basement prices. Remember, the sale continues until Friday.
Happy hunting, bookhounds!
