I am so sad that this store is closing in a couple days! Twice Sold Tales on the Ave has been a familiar marker for me since I moved out here. It’s a wonderfully unfussy place to browse through used books, with friendly employees and skulking cats. I will miss passing by on my way home from work.
Chase bank isn’t to blame but I hate them for taking over this space. A hearty ‘fuck you’ to them, just for being monotonous and EVERYWHERE.
Shopping with Nate and Eric:
“Cats stolen before we instituted this policy: 3, Cats stolen after we instituted this policy: 0”
“No returns, no refunds, even for you.”
Parasaurolophus, Parasaurolophus, Parasaurolophus. Say that three times fast.
Books I bought today. Schnitzel is a blur here because he was cuddling the Katherine Mansfield biography. It was the cutest.
So many good book stores have closed recently: Bailey Coy which I loved best, Abraxus, and Ophelia’s. What a loss!
I’ve been there in My Contemporary Issues Fellowship 2003 and this place was the great image in my memories (sorry for my English)/ I wrote about it in my American diary (on Russian) http://woh7.goodideas.su/america/america_14.htm
I’m happy to say you visited the other location of Twice Sold Tales which is still open- and I think still has the same adorable cats. Thanks for sharing your trip- love your photos!
