Dear friends, neighbors, customers, and colleagues,

Should you find yourself near Plainfield, Vermont over the next 10 days, you
might want to visit The Country Bookshop. We haven’t had a sale for awhile
but during these sale days we’ll be cutting almost everything in the shop by
half.

50% Off all books, old postcards, prints, vintage photographs, and other
paper collectibles. Even our Rare Books are half price.

If you’ve got summer guests, bring ‘em along. This is a great opportunity to
fill out your summer reading list or buy a unique gift for someone special
[including yourself!].

Paperback fiction for 48 cents! Hardback mysteries for $1.48! Ten dollar
books for five and thousand dollar books for five hundred. So many subjects,
wonderful prices and so little time.

Consigned books are 20% off. And new CD’s are already priced too low to
discount. But we’ve got over 50,000 sale books awaiting you in Plainfield.
And we can offer you one of the best old-fashioned rural browsing
experiences in existence today. [Say it fast if you can.]

What: A Half Price Sale.
When: Starting Friday, July, 4th. Ending Sunday, July 13th.
Hours: 10 AM to 5 PM, 7 days a week.
Where: The Country Bookshop.

holiday.

For more than thirty years, almost since its inception, the Vermont Antiquarian Booksellers Association has issued a printed guide to member shops. Available throughout the state at member bookshops, chamber of commerce displays and welcome centers, the VABA Brochure, as it is called, has been very popular with native Vermonters and tourists looking for collectible and hard-to-find books

The VABA Brochure is still being published on an annual basis. You can pick up a copy at any member bookshop, or have one mailed to you, free of charge, by contacting Joseph Trenn, the Book Shed, Lake Road, Benson VT 05731. Joe’s phone number is (802) 537-2190, and his email address is bookshed@shoreham.net.
