The FE Bookstore is located in the same place as the Fifth Estate Newspaper (?) [sic] and can be found at 4403 Second Avenue—telephone (313) 831-6800. Our hours vary quite a bit, so it’s always best to give us a ring before coming down.
HOW TO ORDER BY MAIL:
1) List the title of the book(s), amount wanted and price of each;
2) Add 10% for mailing—not less than $.48 (the post-office has done it again and raised 4th class—books—mailing rates. $.48 is the cheapest and rises quickly after that);
3) Total (Michigan residents please add 4% sales tax—we’re working on trying to get away from this).
Please write all checks and money orders to: FIFTH ESTATE, and mail to FE BOOKS, 4403 Second Ave., Detroit, Michigan 48201, USA.
