Special precautions against exposure to the Covid pandemic will be in place for our Volunteers and Shoppers!
In keeping with state and local regulations regarding the COVID pandemic, all volunteers and shoppers will be required to wear masks whenever in the building. The book tables, as well as other components of the event will be set up to comply with social distancing. No more than 50 shoppers will be allowed entry at the top of each hour, and shoppers will have 50 minutes to shop before they are required to check out so that another 50 shoppers can come in. Children and babies are included in this count. Please read our notice about the pandemic at the bottom of the page.
To guarantee entry at a time of their choosing, shoppers are encouraged to register in advance online for $5 per person. Each paid registration includes one complimentary book of their choosing except from "Bert's Weathered & Treasured" antique book section downstairs.
