Quimby’s books is an institution despite its small size. From their unique events to their prolific selections of independent zines and books, it is also a go-to place to sell your own literary creations on consignment. They’ll sell: Is it because the store is a niche and is set in a neighborhood of artists and hip hobbyists who are the kind of regulars who load up on the latest releases or obscure finds? Whatever the formula, it is working.
