all books, music & DVDs – 50% off ——–

science, music, world and us history, theatre, hollywood, travel, health, psychology, cookbooks, art, photography, poetry, philosophy, ancient studies, native american studies, african american studies, books in spanish, french, german and italian, dictionaries from any language to English, books on collectibles (glass, coins, furniture, etc), fine and collectible and 1st editions, etc.

———- bookcases and other fixtures also for sale —————–

Their last day will be on Sunday, Dec. 2.

  • The people were nice, but WAY overpriced.

      Overpriced compared to both Second Story and Books for America but a great store. Too bad Dupont is loosing or possibly has already lost all its funk.

    I liked this place, but always wondered how it stayed in business.

    Sad news! As a small business owner in DC with a similar inventory to Kultura this hits close to home. Mom and pop retail ain’t easy folks, especially with DC rents attached to it.
    They’re a very nice couple and I wish them well.

    bummer! very cool shop– bought many a gift there. i’m fine with overpaying to support a non-chain store, especially in higher-rent areas like dupont.

      I didn’t mind the high prices, either, but surprised at the earlier comment that the store was “friendly.” I went in a few times and got the up-and-down appraisal, the dismissive sniff, and a distinct lack of interest or help. So tired of that attitude, generally.

      Will this be another Comfort One store?
