The Old Maines Warehouse in Conklin, NY
Interstate 81 Northbound: Make a left off exit 1. Go .8 miles to light at Conklin Rd. Turn right. Go 6.2 miles and turn left onto Terrace Drive. Interstate 81 Southbound: Take exit 3 to traffic light. Turn right, go to 2nd traffic light and turn left. Go over the bridge to Conklin Rd. turn right. Go .4 miles and turn right onto Terrace Drive.. When it comes to GPS, I usually just throw 1 Terrace Drive into my GPS and that takes me right where I need to go.
They totally do not accept credit card, I KNOW so weird, like who really uses checks anymore. So be sure to use cash, and if you are using checks, bring 2 forms of ID with you.
What you can expect:
- Lots of children’s and YA books
- Non fiction
- Waiting in a long line to get inside.
The prices are good too, and they decrease as the sale goes on. There’s been years where I spent $150 and left with over 50 new books. I will probably go on Thursday, so if you’re going tweet me and we may meet up! FYI here is a screen shot of the email I was forwarded with the information:
