The event is called CELTIC CEILIDH and includes dance, great food and silent auction. The event takes place on Friday, March 27th at the Wicked Spoon with performances by Rough Pearl and Circle of Friends. The tickets are $35.00-come out and support our local SAOW.
UPCOMING EVENT IN MARCH: On Saturday, March 28th, from 10-4pm, Bernie Spring from Antiquarius.com, will be at the store to offer a FREE BOOK & EPHEMERA APPRAISAL. Over the 6 years we have been opened we have invited Bernie twice a year for this fun and very informative event. Hope to see you and all your TREASURES.
Ephemera: Any collectible paper product such as---old music sheets; old post cards; photographs; newspapers; posters, etc.
New Book: Local Author, Joyce Burkitt Fetterley, has brought in a family memoir called 'One Cornishman's Children'--this is a story of just two children out of the thousands of them descended from the Cornish mining men who worked around the world, beginning in the 19th Century. Check out the book under the Non-Fiction section.
New to the Store: We have BOOK ENDS made of Agate rock; as well as smaller Calcite Bookends and/or paper weights.
And, if you look up above the top shelf of the Book Shelves you will see unique books for sale on display.
We have 'Book themed' jewelery-keep on a key chain, or put on a necklace, earrings, and so on for an unique gift for book lovers. See under Local Artist section.
