Storefront Open this Saturday


The Lost Art Press storefront will be open this Saturday, Oct. 8, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to sell books, holdfasts from Crucible Tool, T-shirts, posters and the like. The storefront is at 837 Willard St., Covington, Ky. 41011.

We have the new “Stanley Catalogue No. 34” in stock at the store, as well as the red edition of “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest.” We also have a decent selection of blemished books for 50 percent off retail (blemished books are cash only). And a few slightly blemished letterpress tool chest posters.

While you are in Covington, be sure to stop by Covington Coffee on West 12th Street. They have fantastic coffee, Lil’s Bagels and make waffles on weekends. (This is not an advertisement.)

— Christopher Schwarz

P.S. We’ve gotten a few curt notes stuffed in our mailbox from customers who have stopped by on a Saturday when the storefront isn’t open. Please note that we are open only the second Saturday of each month – not every Saturday.

    Beautiful storefront – you should be proud.

    Is there any way of finding out, and potentially purchasing, which books you have in the blemished, 50-percent-off stack without showing up on Saturday?

  3. Salko Safic says:

    Best of luck Chris, I hope you do well.

  4. have you enjoyed a beverage on the fire escape?

    Your store does not appear to have a wheelchair accessible entrance.

      I think that wheeled access is through the stable/garage on the side street frontage – its the small beige building (same colour as the main building) just past the low white fence. Just throw wadded up Kurt notes in the front door or at the windows until someone notices and opens the door. There may still be a functional door to the main building at kerb level without steps on the side street, I know Chris said they blocked one of several side doors to make a work cubby for him.

  6. What amazes me is how many people named Curt apparently try to stop by your store on the first, third, and fourth Saturday of the month!
