Summer Sidewalk Supersale in Uppsala


Summer Sidewalk Supersale in Uppsala

UPPSALA | Friday 1st–Saturday 2nd July

**********
The Sidewalk Supersale is cancelled this Saturday.
(Too rainy...) Or rather postponed – we'll be back next week. As will the sunny summer weather... Watch this space for next opportunity to make crazy bargains.
**********

Tomorrow afternoon, Friday 1st July, at 1 pm, on the sidewalk in front of our little corner shop your minds will be blown (but not your wallets)!!!

We’re chucking out loads and loads of really good titles we need to get rid of (shop’s a little TOO charmingly cluttered of late) – and (and I’m going to shout now) THE PRICES ARE AMAZING!

Any 1 book for 20 kronor. (Dirt cheap, I know but wait...)
Any 4 books for 50 kronor. (Wow! That's cheap, but hold on... )
Any 10 books for 120 kronor. (Say what????)

Yes – sale is on Friday afternoon and Saturday only, and while stocks last and we still have strength.

SO – go home and sleep now, and after a lovely lazy morning, come downtown and make the bargain of a lifetime. Bring a little money and a trolley.

Happy Midsummer!


Happy Midsummer

Midsummer is here and the bookshops will be closed for a few days for midsummer celebrations – so stock up on your midsummer’s reading today. (Reading is fortunately an every-kind-of-weather activity…).

The Uppsala shop will be closed Friday and Saturday, and the Stockholm shop Friday–Sunday.

Have a great Midsummer weekend, wherever you are.
We’ll be back in business again after the holidays.
