A Note About Website Availability

Titles listed on our website are not necessarily in stock at our physical storefront. If a book says "usually ships in 1-5 days," that means it should be available at our distributor's warehouses, but it does not indicate whether we have the book in stock at the shop. We have some lists on our home page of books that are usually on the shelves, but those are manually updated by us. It is not currently possible for us to manually update every title on the site with its in-store availability. The fastest way to check on a title or two is to give us a call at 617-734-7323. If you have a longer list, or if you have a little more time to wait for a response, send us an email or place an online order. Thank you for understanding!

Gift Certificates

Our gift certificates are available in any amount and they never expire. You can purchase gift certificates in store or call us at 617-734-7323 to order one for pickup at the shop or mailing directly to your recipient. You can also order a gift certificate online using this form!

We are happy to accept your gift certificate for purchases made on our online shop. You can select the "pay at store" option if you plan to pay with your gift certificate when you pick up your books at the shop. Alternatively, you can include the gift certificate number (found in the top right corner) and the name on the gift certificate in your online order comment, and we will process your payment from your gift card before taking funds from your credit card. You will be required to enter your credit card information, but we will not charge your card unless the order total exceeds the balance of the gift card.
