Ain't Portland Grand
Thank you very much for taking the time to look at us. We are a small business doing our best to have a great time while providing things of interest to our customers. We have lots of strange/esoteric/fun things to look at, in addition to a great selection of used and rare books. We would love to see you in person and encourage you to come into the store, located at 1401 SE Division St, Portland, OR 97202-1139. We are here in the afternoons Monday through Saturday.

Thank you very much for looking
After a year and a half I am back again to give you a quick update on what's happening with the store. My Father and I have been getting along pretty well- his health is holding up and I am nearly recovered from a fairly serious concussion I suffered in January 2010. Since I last posted we have acquired a beautiful collection of academic books, 60 boxes of high quality volumes dealing with Ancient Greece and Rome, Mythology, Art, Philosophy, Primitive Societies and more. We have been selling a large quantity of those books online but encourage anyone to come in and browse our stock in the afternoons. I will try to post photos soon. We have also started a Google marketing campaign to let people know that we have rare books, magazines and ephemera. Also to emphasize that we also buy high quality books and pay cash- we are one of the few bookstores in town other than Powell's to do so. January was a great month for us because of back to school sales, and this year has started well, so we will cross our fingers that this year will hold up, as 2009 was quite slow for us, just as it was for everyone else we've talked to. Thanks again for reading, and feel free to contact us at email@example.com or 503 239-5222.
