November 2019 NEWSLETTER
WE MADE IT A YEAR! THANKS TO ALL OF YOU! We’ve come so far in a year and we are looking forward to celebrating with you THIS Saturday 7-11pm will be our Halloween One Year Anniversary Party. Throughout the day if spend $20 or more you’ll get to choose a free Advanced Readers Copy. As always we have oodles of book clubs and FOUR new ones starting in 2020. Our holiday hours will begin November 29th on Black Friday but we’re more excited about Shop Small Saturday! We’ll have a sale the whole weekend of November 29-December 1st. We are also participating in the Cocoa Crawl and are a Sip Stop featuring the wonderful hot cocoa by Carrefour Coffee who will also be selling coffee! Grab a cup before you head over to the tree lighting. We will also be changing our hours in January. Please see BELOW.
A reminder special orders can be placed twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays by 11am. Did you know we not only order but we preorder?! For no additional cost you can have your book ready to pick up on the Tuesday it is released. See more details below. This also helps support authors and our bookshop. Ask us for more details the next time you’re in! Another service we’ll be offering to our customers is wish lists! Provide us with your name and any books on your wish list and we’ll add them to our system so your friends and family can check in with us for birthdays and holidays. We also offer gift certificates too!
We are thrilled to be partnering with the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association to provide the annual Holiday Catalog for the first time this holiday season. Please pick up your copy in our shop starting November 5th. In addition to the print version we will be sharing the catalog digitally in the December Newsletter Email us if you’d like us to reserve or order any of the books in the catalog.
