    Celebrating Home County!
    July 19th – July 21st

    This is our first year in business without a booth at the Home County Music & Art Festival. Since we began, Home County has supported us and given us the chance to be part of their incredible community.

    We want to celebrate the Festival this weekend by:

    * Staying open late on Friday and Saturday nights!
    * Offering free popsicles in our air conditioned store on Saturday!
    * Showcasing live music in store on Saturday with Westminster
    Park at 7pm and Robin Henry at 9pm!
    * Discounting 50% off music books all weekend!

    When you come downtown for London's oldest and absolute best festival, we hope you'll pop in and say hello.

    Happy Home County!

  • A Night with Spot of Delight

    A Night with Spot of Delight

    Saturday, June 22, 7 PM

    We've recently acquired a small select library of vintage erotica. While looking at the illustrations we were...erm, interested as to how or what exactly was being pictured. So we called our expert friends at Spot of Delight to shed some light on them and other vintage erotica that we have, um, acquired over the years.

    Join us as we bring you an evening of sexy and educational fun! Brown and Dickson will be quizzing Spot of Delight's staff on a variety of sexy literature and visual art to find out if these authors and artists have created something that can actually be done.

    The fun part? Their staff will not have any time to analyse and prepare! They will be doing this all on the fly! It is sure to be a fun filled, yet educational evening!
