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.

holiday.

Country Bookshop Sale Continues

Hello friends and neighbors.

I’ve made a command decision to continue our store-wide Half Price Sale until the end of December. Many people have been shopping here – they leave with smiles on their faces – so let’s keep those feelings alive.

What?: 50,000 books, prints, old postcards, and other paper items are on sale at 50% off our already low prices. This includes the rare books in our front room, as well as everything in all the other rooms. (Yes, there are a few exceptions, but they are few and far between.) This is a magnificent sale!

When?: We’ve already started – Country Bookshop Sale Days are on right now. We’ll be ending the sale on New Year’s Eve at 5 PM.
We’re open every day from 10 until 5. (We’ll be closed on Christmas Day, Dec 25th).

So, be merry and celebrate whichever holiday you celebrate.

And, when you’re looking for something special, for whichever special person is special to you – [whew] – come to The Country Bookshop.
