Monday January 23rd and Tuesday January 24th are your final chances to visit & shop at 601 Markham St.

Moving a store, especially a book store that’s existed at the same location for nearly 25 years, is not a small or easy task, and until now we’ve been a little bit unsure as to when the actual final-day would be at our historic 601 Markham Street location. Well we’ve done the math, seen the progress we’ve made moving, and figured out everyone’s schedules, and we’ve got the date.

If you ever wanted to visit and shop at our historic 601 Markham Street Location, the final two days of 601 Markham Street for shopping will be Monday, January 23rd and Tuesday, January 24th. We will be open 11am to 7pm each day. 

The store will have one final event in it on Saturday the 28th (details below), but it is highly unlikely that there will be any comics or books still available for purchase in the space.


The discount for our final clearance sale has been increased to 75% off the regular sale price! Sale runs until end-of-business on Tuesday, January 24th.

Hundreds more books have been brought out of storage and been put on sale for as low as $1 each! The rest are 75% off regular price!



  • All listed sale prices are for 601 Markham Street ONLY. 
  • 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.
  • 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 Converted Canadian Cover price, Canadian Cover Price, or Sticker Price.

We are entertaining all sorts of wholesale offers! That means you could show up one day and all of the Marvel trades, or all of the back issues, or who knows what could just be GONE, sold to another comics dealer! Come early, come often!

The Beguiling’s new location at
319 College Street now up and running!

We’re settling into our great new location at 319 College Street and adding more product every day. While it’s not having a clearance sale, it IS getting new comics and trade paperbacks every Wednesday, and some of the great unique and rare items we’re digging out of the warehouse are making an appearance on store shelves there too! Why not come visit us? The Beguiling at 319 College Street is only a 10 minute walk from the old store, and can easily be reached by either the College or Spadina streetcar lines! Open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday 11am to 7pm, 11am until 9pm on Wednesday and Friday, and 12pm-6pm on Sunday.

Thanks for 30 years of support (1987-2017!)
Here’s to 30 more!
