Temporary holiday hours this week . . . not to say there are any last-minute shoppers out there, but just in case ;-)
Monday - Friday: 9:30-7:00
Monday 12/24: 9:00-1:00
If you know exactly what you want, you can always call ahead of time and we'll pull it off of the shelf for you and have it wrapped and ready when you pick it up. We have until Thursday (12/20) morning to place our last holiday order, so if there's anything out there you want us to order simply give us a ring and we'll get it in the order for arrival on Friday.
STORY TIME ... Christmas books galore on WEDNESDAY, 12/19 at 3:00. I plan on reading Snowmen at Christmas, The Night Before Christmas, and Olive the Other Reindeer. The craft is a good ol' paper chain garland.
We have 4 copies left of the author- and illustrator-signed Life of Pi Illustrated Edition books left (hardcover/$29.95). A great and rare gift for the book lover. I'm in love with Bird: The Definitive Guide from DK & Audubon (hardcover, $50.00). It's a gorgeous book and would be a welcomed treat by any birder on your list.
We still have a few stuffed penguins left, and the kids love these (2 ft. plush toy, $19.99). Pair the stuffed penguin with a penguin book and, voila, you're a hero ... Santa would be jealous. Or, for the mini chef, perhaps a copy of William Steig's hilarious book, Pete's a Pizza (hardcover, $16.99), paired with Melissa & Doug's Pizza Party pizza toy ($19.98). Mmmm, pizza.
For the know-it-all, try The New York Times Guide to Essential Knowledge (hardcover, $31.95). They may know a lot, but this book will show them that there still are a few new things to be learned.
And, yep, gift wrap is complimentary! We get backed up from time to time with wrapping, but you can always buy it, leave it, let us wrap it, and come back later if you're short on time.
Happy holidays!! We look forward to seeing you soon . . .
