Borderlands has moved its books to Haight Street and into a building Alan Beatts, the owner, purchased for the bookstore. Left behind was an assortment of furniture, some serious woodworking tools, and some surprises, like a small piano.
Beatts was at 866 Valencia St. on Thursday afternoon for the first day of a moving sale.
One person, stepping in for a look, remembered when the store was Engdahl’s Paint and Unfinished Furniture in the 1970s and earlier. She said someone in that old store played an accordion.
