…as the old song goes- and it suddenly is! I’m not sure when it happened, but the leaves are down, the skies have taken a on grayish light, and the geese have mostly passed us by. The field outside our window is just dotted with fleeting, fading green patches, and the abundant wildlife harbored there seems suddenly hushed in accordance with the new muted theme.
But things are animated here inside the Old Library! With Thanksgiving gone in a blink, we are shaping up to welcome patrons into our little haven, where they can escape the seasonal hustle and bustle to browse in our festive, yet quiet and relaxed atmosphere. (How many retailers can say that this time of year?) Just this weekend we were honored to take part in Small Business Saturday- something which really seems to be catching on in the local area. We loved seeing some new faces and helping them to get acquainted with our beautiful old building and its history. Very soon we’ll be hanging the wreaths on the front door and decking out our the book shop with other Holiday offerings- cards, sheet music, ephemera, and plenty of books to help you make things merry and bright. Our friendly staffers would be happy to assist you in finding just the right thing, or simply letting you do your own thing, if that’s what you prefer. In a season that seems to revolve so much around “things”, we invite you to stop in, shake off the chill (and maybe a little stress) while you peruse our selection for a gift that is sure to be meaningful and appreciated. (Or, if you’re unsure about your recipient’s tastes, perhaps a gift certificate is best- we offer those too!) Happiest Holidays and hope to see you soon!
(And yes, the 50% off sale is still going! Ask us for details!)
