  • Bring your own bags! Save the environment!
  • We reserve the right to refuse sale of any item to any customer for any reason.  We probably won’t do this, but this is a straightforward disclaimer in case there’s any dispute about what is or isn’t on sale.
  • Out-of-print items (books/comics/etc.) are exempt from sale pricing. Determination of ‘out of print’ is at The Beguiling’s sole discretion. Ask at the counter if you’re unsure.
  • Anything put on hold prior to Boxing Day is entirely exempt to sale pricing.
  • Sales cannot be combined with other specials or sales.
  • “Regular Price” is determined as ‘Whatever the book would sell for not on Boxing Day,’ whether that’s U.S. Cover Price, Converted Canadian Cover price, Canadian Cover Price, or Sticker Price.
  • Items released in December 2013 or later are not eligible for sale. Determination for eligibility will be made at the cash register, at our sole discretion.

BACK ISSUE BINS and WALL BOOKS and VARIANTS will not be browsable at this time. They are not on sale, they aren’t even really FOR sale. We are sorry, but we’re focusing on other product during this part of the sale, and we need the space and attention for other things. Thanks!
