New Chapters
It's been almost three weeks since we made the announcement that Copperfish Books is for sale. We know this news came as a surprise to many of you. We are so grateful for all of your expressions of how much Copperfish has meant to you over the years! We also appreciate your understanding about our wish to step away from owning and operating the bookstore. 

It's still early in the process, so we don't have much news to share. But we’re happy to say we’ve received many inquiries, several serious, and are hopeful we'll find the right person(s) to take Copperfish Books into the future.

In the meantime, stop in for a chat or a good book or two! Take care and thanks for your business!

Cathy and Serena

P.S. For information about purchasing the store, please see our website here.

The 40th Florida Antiquarian Book Fair returns March 10-12 to The Coliseum in downtown St. Petersburg! 

Dozens of independent booksellers from all over the country will open pop-up bookshops for the weekend, providing a booklover's paradise. As we have since 2009, we (Cathy and Serena) will set up a booth full of special books that may not have made it into the store. We hope to see you at the Fair!

Easter is April 9

Easter is a wonderful occasion to give a little one a new book! We have cutest books for Easter baskets, as well as greeting cards for your loved ones of all ages!


Events will take place at Copperfish Books unless otherwise noted.
