Red River Books, Dec 14 2011

92 Arthur street, Winnipeg

Red River Books has been a wonderful jumble of used books and magazines (and VHS tapes and comics and vinyl records) for years. It’s kind of a store and a treasure hunt at the same time.

It is definitely a destination for all people who visit Winnipeg!

Denis, owner operator, says “It’s always the book you didn’t buy that you regret the most, not the book you actually bought and was disappointed with.”

The first Winnipeg Fringe Festival poster from 1987. It used to hang in the Macaroni Bar, on the second floor of the Mother Tuckers Restaurant which was in the Masonic Temple built in 1895 on the corner of Donald and Ellice

 

And Denis also has the second Fringe poster from 1988 too…
