, and you’ll go to the page affiliated with our online store. We hope you’ll use this throughout the year for books for you, for friends, family, neighbors, your pets, whoever! Our books at Bookshop are often discounted (just like the Big A), are mailed directly to you (or wherever you want), and you can find just about every book in print!
Note that at the very bottom of the web page, there is a link to Gift Certificates, which you can send to anyone with an email address. Give the gift of books any time of the year!
First of all, Gabby is fine, but she won’t be in the store anymore. My assistant won’t be here from now on — my husband, Andrew Phillips, and I are back to running it ourselves. We not only wish him no harm, but also wish him the best in some endeavors only he can do for himself. He’s been a terrific assistant and a good friend.
I’ll still be posting online (Instagram, FB, Twitter: we’re “starcatbooks”) daily “star cats” of my own — Willow (1 year old as of 2 weeks ago) and Spike (14 years old this year) are still in fine fettle and very photogenic.
In the meantime, the news is SEPTEMBER IS BACK TO SCHOOL SAVINGS: 10% off all children’s books, both new and used. We take cash, check, debit/credit card (with a $10 minimum because of fees) — and of course we order books every two weeks (new books); inquire about a book you’re interested in!
Thank you for being patient while we shielded the store’s windows with our beautiful Swedish curtains — that summer sun was brutal. The curtains are coming down tonight, and you’ll be able to see us again!
Attention all Makers! Stitch ‘n B*tch Saturdays is what’s happening!
Bring your latest portable craft project (I teach knitting and basic crochet if you bring needles/hooks and yarn!) and hang out with us from 1:00-3:00pm every Saturday afternoon. No b*tching necessary (but yakking is lots of fun in itself). Coffee (Vittles coffee pods!)
