Today, Dasa Book Café – my favourite second-hand bookstore in Bangkok – will move to a new building on Sukhumvit!
During the process of moving and rearranging everything they will be closed for several days starting today, Monday, August 24. They plan to re-open for business on Friday the 28th, but if the move goes smoothly they may be open by Thursday afternoon.
The new location is situated only a few buildings away from the previous spot, on the same block of Sukhumvit, between Soi 26 and Soi 28. Walking east, past Soi 26, the shop is between Peterson Piano Gallery and Sabai Thai Massage.
Mail order service will resume on August 31. For customers with books to sell or exchange, they will be happy to look at them starting on August 28.
At present they have an inventory of over 14,000 books, and they plan to keep increasing the selection of books at the new location. The new store will have more bookshelves and display space, spread out over three floors.
