It's been a few years since our last store-wide sale,
but we will be holding the 2016 Rabelais sale:
Thursday through Sunday
August 25th through 28th
11am-4pm each day
This means thousands of new, used, out-of-print, and rare books, all dedicated to cooking, food and drink, will be available at special prices.
All books in the shop priced $100 or less, will be 40% off
All books in the shop priced above $100 will be 30% off
Many extra-discounted books, priced $1-$5 (final discount)
Also, this will be your opportunity to purchase books from the library of food historian Alice Ross, all at the above discounts. Alice's library consisted of hundreds of antiquarian books from the late 19th through the early 20th centuries, as well as over one thousand books on food history, and many, many hard-to-find cookbooks. Some of the books in this collection were important books, but in less than collector's condition, so this is a chance to buy antiquarian cookery at good prices. And these are not the types of books you see everywhere.
We will remove a very few items from inventory that are consignments, otherwise, everything for sale in the shop is available at the above discounts. Please note that these discounts do not apply to online purchases.
You must be in the shop to purchase.
