    This place is a hidden gem! Really great finds in the $2-$3 section, and a cool little garden in the back. Thought it was some sort of psychedelic poster shop for 2 years via the front window!

    Great place for ppl who still refuse to acknowledge we're in the greatest financial since the Depression. Good critical and philosophy sections as well as decent black studies at fantastic prices.

    The monthly specials of$2 and $3 books are nice to pick up but the antiques spread through the shelves are the best
