What You'll Get
Besides being a useful replacement for a missing bed frame leg, a stack of books also makes you look smarter and can stop a crossbow arrow if you're being targeted by any misinformed vampire slayers. Revel in the usefulness of books with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of used, rare and out-of print books, prints, vinyl records, and more from James and Mary Laurie Booksellers, located in downtown Minneapolis.
A member of the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America, James and Mary Laurie Booksellers houses more than 120,000 volumes of fine books, an expansive collection of antiquarian printed maps, and an inventory of more than 30,000 classical and jazz vinyl records. Like a conversation with an overcaffeinated talk-show host, the shop's books cover myriad topics, including history, philosophy, and religion. Learn to costume your pet giraffe like a Japanese doll with Poupees Japonaises; Dolls of Japan ($86.20), make better small talk with bowhunting astrophysicists using Bowhunting Big Game Records of North America ($43.10), or salve squabbles with tiny family members with a special volume of children's literature. Customers can also choose from a broad selection of maps, posters, and prints, such as a World War II–era Red Cross poster ($86.20). The majority of James and Mary Laurie Booksellers' collection is not featured online, so for questions regarding the availability of items, contact the store by phone, email, or book-shaped beacon.
