Holiday Shopping

**IMPORTANT: This year, complimentary gift wrapping will not be available after November 15th, for in-store or online orders.  We don't have the space to follow safe social distancing practices for the additional staff required for wrapping your gifts this holiday season.  Again, note that we cannot offer complimentary gift wrapping from November 16th through Christmas for space and staff safety reasons.** Concierge purchases over $250, and 3-book Book Club Bundles will continue to include complimentary gift wrapping.

This holiday season, shopping early is more important than ever. Due to the high demand for books, the potential for supply chain disruptions and delayed inventory shipments, and the need to help bookstores and other small businesses make it through the end of the year, we have new shopping methods to make your gift giving easier. From concierge shopping appointments with our professional book buyers to monthly subscription boxes and our new book club bundles, East City Bookshop can help you create the perfect gift. 

Antiracism Resources

In collaboration with Keiana Mayfield, MSW we are working to provide antiracism resources for our community. For those looking to educate themselves and grow their library, we are offering Antiracism Starter Kits and a series of new Shelf Improvement Subscription Boxes for all ages. We're also offering new virtual learning opportunities for our East City Bookshop community! To start, we are offering two workshops: Raising Antiracist Kids and All In: Dismantling Barriers to Antiracism.
