Truth to tell, the turn out for our sale last weekend wasn’t very good, but I wasn’t terribly surprised as we hadn’t had much time to advertise it properly and typhoon Talas was keeping sane folk indoors. We did get a little bit of passing trade though and made exactly 9,300 yen for Tohoku disaster relief. Hopefully – with your help – we can do a LOT better this weekend. We still have some great bargains, paperbacks and hardback books (sorted by genre) selling for between 100 – 300 yen. Super cheap clothes (300 -600 yen), + electrical goods, crockery, a massive CD selection and heaps of vinyl records – all of it going for silly prices! Pretty much everyone who did come last Saturday found something they wanted and I guarantee if you come you will find something too. Mewby bought herself a top.
And even I bought myself a Neville Brothers CD. I’ve been listening to it this evening and what a find! All that priceless music for only 200 yen! Many thanks to Robert Yellin for recommending that one to me.
Anyway, the fact is that though we are still looking for a new place, we have only two more sales this month and after the last one on the 17th I’m not sure when or if we’ll be able to do this again. So grab this opportunity to show your support for Tohoku and get yourself some giveaway bargains to boot!
Saturday 10th September from 1 till 5pm.
Saturday 17th September from 9 till 6pm.
The Kurochiku building is on the north-west corner of Shinmachi and Rokkaku streets, three streets west of Karasuma and one street south of Sanjo. Here is a map. All money goes to the local NPO IDRO Japan to support the people in Tohoku. Again this Saturday, it’s just me and Mewby manning the shop. We hope to see you there.
Many thanks to Kyoto company Kurochiku for letting us use this space.
Oh and remember, that bear still needs a home.
