CHS Pics | An E Union visit to Pistil Books’ Annual Outdoor Book Sale

Sean Carlson and Amy Candiotti, are the co-owners of Pistil Books. Their first store started where Bimbo’s currently sits.

CHS stopped by an E Union summer tradition last weekend that made for a most excellent warm-up for another big event coming this weekend that will also feature good deals and bargain hunting on special, one of a kind treasures. Sunday, you can join the fun at the 2019 Capitol Hill Garage Sale Day centered around Cal Anderson Park Alliance’s community sale. Check out capitolhillgaragesale.org for details.

Las weekend, the alley behind 1415 E Union was the center of the action as independent book retailer Pistil Books held its yearly book sale featuring “hundreds of books in all categories, including fiction, science, history, poetry, art, how-to, biographies, and more. Many like new. Paperbacks $1, Hardbacks $2″… and free lemonade!

Started way back in 1993 in the heart of Pike/Pine, Pistil does most of its business online these days. You can check it out — and do some shopping — at pistilbooks.net.
