Starting Thursday June 9th, we'll be open seven days a week, 11:00 am - 6:00 pm.

And here is the more detailed info:

Borderlands Books has been planning to move to the Haight since we bought a building to be our forever home in 2017.  However: the pandemic, deaths in the family, "fun" with elder care, supply chain issues and many other unexpected factors have delayed our move to that location, and the space isn't ready for us yet.  Meanwhile, our lease is up here at Valencia, and we've been having a lot of plumbing problems.  The worst of which we won't recount in polite company; and with one of the most recent being a quite dramatic flood from the ceiling that completely destroyed everything on Jude's desk while she was out of town, and sent poor Jeremy and Scott scrambling to make sure we didn't lose anything else. 

So, we're moving temporarily to an awesome space in the Haight until we can finish our forever space for real.  We're so very, very excited and we hope you will be too!
