Book store on South Street 4/17/2006

There's a greeat bookstore on South Street in Philadelphia called Wooden Shoe Books. It's on 508 S 5th Street. It's a specialty book store, catering to anarchist and leftist politics, as well as queer, punk, black history and more. It's a small shop, and it's all volunteer. It doesn't have a boss, either: all workers make descisions with each other at monthly meetings. As far as price, it's an independent bookstore, so it sells most things at cover price (the price the publisher has specified). They also sell pamphlets, zines, music, t-shirts, magazines, stickers, pins and patches. Open 12p - 10p sun - thurs, 12p - 11p sat & sun. 215-413-0999 more

Best book store ever 2/28/2006

This is run by volunteers, which makes it x10 better than any other place. They sell tons of stuff: pamphlets to stickers and patches and CDs and vinyls and shirts and really you never know what you could find unless you go in. It's so good to give your money to a good place too. Spend wisely and shop here. more
