With a window display that features a stuffed Tweety Bird spinning around a record player like a kid on a merry-go-round, Encore Books & Records is one seriously cool establishment. This charmingly quirky shop in the heart of NDG boasts a vast array of (mostly) ever-so-gently-used brain candy. And with a “buy three, get the fourth free” sale on this month, you’ve got every reason to expand your library.
Books range from between $2.95 to $20, and records are $3 to $20. For those of you who splurged on a fabulous pair of shoes and are now strapped for cash, there’s a $1 bin with your name written all over it (chock-full of Barbara Streisand and other castaways). Or you can de-clutter your apartment by trading in your used books for cash.
With its sweet sales and even sweeter mascot, Encore is a place you’ll come back to again and again.
