Update: Caterina Giuliano and Jo Angri are the lucky new owners of the Bookshop!

The gorgeous women behind the Feminist Bookshop in Sydney are retiring and their bedrock of liberal resources for women is looking for new owners.

I am just one of many whom Gail and Libby have helped. For example, they were instrumental in letting Read These Lips find an audience in Australia. These women are amazingly generous and kind, and I cannot thank them enough for nurturing the flame.

The Feminist Bookshop Is For Sale

Libby and Gail have decided it is time to retire. We would like The Feminist Bookshop to continue with its important work, as there is still potential for growth, especially if new owners can take the bookshop on-line and further into new technologies.

As a small independent bookshop our survival for 36 years has been a great achievement, and this has happened through hard work, dedication, and the support of many loyal customers.  Our major customers are in the social work/community services sector, where we are highly respected, and where there are still many contacts to be made Australia wide.  Our other important support has come from a diverse lesbian community, and from feminists in all walks of life.

If you are looking for a new career with top quality job-satisfaction, and you are interested in buying an iconic bookshop, please contact us as soon as possible for further information.

Please forward this email to your friends, colleagues and networks/newsletters etc. help us spread the word
Also please remember that it is business as usual…your continued support is very much appreciated

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
