    On Early Bird Saturday, Nov. 4, the Skidompha Secondhand Book Shop will hold a store-wide, half-price sale from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    On sale at half-price will be thousands of hardcover and paperback books for adults and children; music on records and CDs; movies on DVDs; and games and puzzles. The only items not included are gift certificates and books being held in reserve.

    Refreshments will be offered to early shoppers.

    Rosie Bensen, co-manager of the shop, said, “This is a great time to stock up for winter reading and entertainment, and a perfect start to the holiday shopping season. Visitors to Damariscotta who come into the shop often comment on the variety and quality of what we offer. We hope new customers and our faithful regulars will all join us and take advantage of this sale.”

    The book shop is located at 17 Backstreet Landing in downtown Damariscotta and is open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Donations are accepted during those hours.

    Yankee Magazine this year named the shop the best used book store in Maine. 

    It is a major source of funding for Skidompha Public Library. All items are donated, all staff members are volunteers, and all proceeds support the library’s collections and programs.
