National Independent Bookstore Day

Saturday, April 30, 10am-6pm

Stop by Uncle Hugo's and Uncle Edgar's this Saturday, spend $50 or more, and get a free Uncles bookbag.

We're hoping to be busier than usual, so this Saturday would NOT be a good day to bring in large batches of used books.

We order T-shirts and sweatshirts about every 2 years, and we will be placing a new order soon. We stock T-shirts in adult unisex sizes Small through XXL, and sweatshirts in sizes Large through XXL, but we can special order other sizes if you contact us by April 27th.

T-shirts and sweatshirts have either Uncle Hugo’s logo on the front and Uncle Edgar’s logo on the back, or Uncle Edgar’s logo on the front and Uncle Hugo’s logo on the back. If you place a special order, please specify which logo you want on the front.

The prices for t-shirts are:
Small through XL $14.00
XXL $17.00
XXXL $20.00 (special order only)

The prices for sweatshirts are:
Large and XL $27.00 (Small and Medium are also this price, special order only)
XXL $30.00
XXXL $33.00 (special order only)

Most of the t-shirts are 100% cotton, and all of the sweatshirts are 50/50 cotton/polyester.

T-shirt colors are Ash (light grey, 98/2 cotton/polyester), Black, Gold, Kelly Green, Light Blue, Purple, Retro Heather Coral (light orange, think cantaloupe, 50/50 cotton/polyester), Royal Blue (dark blue), and True Red. Last time we also ordered both light pink and bright pink, and we have lots of those in stock.

Sweatshirt colors are Ash, Forest Green (very dark green), Red, Royal Blue, Kelly Green, and Purple. We have lots of Forest Green and Red in stock now.

To order or place a special order, e-mail UncleHugo@aol.com and Don will take care of it. (T-shirts and sweatshirts cannot be ordered through the website shopping cart.)

Uncle Hugo's is a finalist in the Best Bookstore (Used) category of the City Pages 2016 Best of the Twin Cities Readers' Choice Poll. If you are so inclined, you have until April 10 to vote in their poll:

The Uncles will be closed on Sunday, March 27. To those so inclined, Happy Easter; and happy Sunday to everyone!

"10 Cloverfield Lane" giveaway

"10 Cloverfield Lane" is a new J.J. Abrams film (not yet rated) that Paramount Pictures will be releasing in theaters on March 11. The folks doing local publicity for the film decided to do a tie-in with Uncle Hugo's 42nd Anniversary. They have provided us with 25 passes (each admits 2 people) for an advance screening plus 25 "10 Cloverfield Lane" stocking caps to give out to the first 25 people who request them starting at 10:00am on Saturday, March 5. The advance screening is at 7:30pm on Wednesday, March 9, at The Showplace Icon at The West End, 1625 West End Blvd, St. Louis Park. If you're interested in getting a pass and cap, try to be in line outside Uncle Hugo's by 10:00am on Saturday. If you're not interested, you might want to shop a bit later on Saturday, in case parking spaces are in short supply.
