Posts Tagged ‘Mrs. Dalloway bookstore’

Want to own a bookstore named after Virginia Woolf’s most famous character? You can. The award-wining Mrs. Dalloway bookstore in Berkeley, Calif., is up for sale.

We first heard of the shop in September 2014, when we made reference to a blurb about its Woolf connections and its book recommendations. Now, after 17 years in business, the two owners of the shop named after Woolf’s 1925 novel have listed it for sale.

About the shop

Set in the center of Berkeley’s Elmwood shopping district on College Avenue, the shop expanded in 2009, nearly doubling its space while other stores were facing challenges.

According to the shop’s website, it was then able to create “a vibrant events program with readings from leading novelists, poets, biographers and garden writers from not only the Bay Area but all over the United States and beyond, about 100 per year.”
