The name is very suggestive for a second-hand bookstore: “I’m sorry for the dust”. Run by journalist Ricardo Lombardi in his mother’s tiny garage in Pinheiros district, the place attracts a very intellectual and cool crowd. They go over there to browse over 5000 books and rare magazines that used to be Lombardi’s private collection – or, as he calls it, an “editor’s collection”. Former Bravo’s editor in chief (one of the most important Brazilian magazine devoted to the cultural scene, closed in 2013), the owner (and only employee) helps the clients with suggestions. The shelves are divided by categories, like “journalists & journalism”; “Machadiana”, with books regarding Machado de Assis, one of the most important Brazilian writers; and others. If you are a book lover like me, you must visit him.
