Serendipity Books, the Berkeley, California landmark and legendary rare book shop owned and operated by the late and equally legendary Berkeley landmark, Peter B. Howard, is now publicly on the block.
The entire shop may be purchased. Alternatively, the inventory and fixtures are being offered separately, as is an option to purchase or continue the lease on the building.
A separate page with details of the sale is now on Serendipity's website.
The Howard family is also talking to auction houses.
A private deal to sell the shop fell through earlier this year after negotiations broke down.
