Help with Our New Building
As you're probably aware, we've just bought a 1902 building on Haight Street that will be the permanent home for Borderlands. The place needs a fair amount of work and we're happy to accept help doing the work, if you'd like to give it. You'll be working with a pretty fine group of people and you'll have a chance to learn a bunch about how buildings are put together and restored. If that sounds interesting, please drop Alan a line at email@example.com or you can just reply to this email.
There's another sort of help we're looking for as well. And, if you're a long-time SF resident, you might have what we need. Alan and Zach (our historian) are looking for pictures of the south side of Haight Street between Masonic and Central. The older the better but even shots from as short a time as five years ago would be very welcome. We're putting together a history of the building and finding photographs has been surprisingly difficult. If you've got something, please let Alan know.
Limited Edition 20th Anniversary Hoodie
We unveiled the special Borderlands Books 20th anniversary hoodie last month at our party, and we still have some left for sale. They feature a lovely silk-screened design courtesy of sponsor Michelle Rapp, and will only be available for a limited time. We're happy to ship them world-wide or you can stop by the shop to pick one up. If you'd like one shipped, please call the shop during business hours toll-free at 888 893-4008 or you can email us to make arrangements. The hoodies are $55 each, plus any shipping charges, and they are sized from small to XXXL. One note about sizing -- they are quite a trim fit, and so you might want to go a size larger than usual unless you like your clothing snug.
