From The Obscure to the Indispensable

We like to think we serve up a heady cultural brew of books, records, cds, dvds and magazines, considering we've survived many janky economies, The Great Recession, The Kindle Delusion and The Massive Beige Downloading.

We buy books and records (and sometimes cds and dvds) Tuesdays through Saturdays, 12 to 5. But call 410-243-6888 or talk to us in person before bringing anything in.

In books we are primarily looking for philosophy, ancient Greek and Roman classics, speculative sci-fi, hardboiled fiction, classic literature, contemporary authors like Murakami, Octavia Butler, James Baldwin, Cormac McCarthy, Paul Bowles, W.G. Sebald, Robert Aickman etc.
