UPDATE MARCH 30: WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING ORDERS ON THIS SITE OR BY PHONE, but keep reading for how you can continue to support us!

As we are not deemed by the State of Vermont to be "critical to the public health and safety... [or] economic and national security," we have, regretfully, ceased in-person operations at 38 Main Street, including the fulfillment of online orders.

HOWEVER...you can continue to support us by shopping for books at Bookshop.organ online bookstore with a mission to financially support independent bookstores. Our branded affiliate site there has a growing inventory of bookseller recommendations, VBS Signature Reads, and new releases. It looks great, works well, and we earn a 30% commission on every sale. 

Please email Becky if you have an inquiry about an outstanding order made through this site, in person, by email, or on the phone. She will continute to assist you as best as she can. We hope to have a full staff of booksellers back in the shop soon!
