Private Shopping Deposit

We’ve got the Christmas tree on our patio, the ice rink down the block. Santa’s sleigh makes a regular run past our front steps. M. Judson Booksellers is right in the thick of Greenville’s holiday spirit. And starting November 22, you can reserve your own private bookstore shopping party for you and up to 30 of your friends. Invite your officemates, your book club buddies or far-flung family, or maybe plan the most spectacular date night ever, just the two of you and your chai lattes, browsing the shelves. We can’t think of a better way to usher in the season.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Appointments must be booked at least 24 hours in advance and require a $50 deposit that can be used toward your purchases.
  • Appointments are from 7:00 – 8:30. If you will be arriving after 7pm, just let us know. Otherwise the store will close, and you’ll lose your deposit.
  • Enter through the front door and check in at the front desk.
  • You can call ahead to order specific catering. Cheese and charcuterie boards? We can do that. Want a good old fashioned layer cake? Let us know your flavors and we’ll have it waiting. Check out our menu here for more of what we do..
You’ll also get the benefit of a personal book shopper. We welcome your questions, and we absolutely love giving recommendations for everybody on your list. That’s our favorite thing about these shopping appointments!
