The weather has turned chilly and our thoughts are starting to turn to the holiday’s ahead.  We want to help you get ready for spending a bit more time indoors as well as help you get your holiday shopping finished early so that you may sit back and enjoy the time with your family and friends. 

To get you started, our sale of the month is Buy one get one free books!  Hardback, paperback, fiction, non-fiction – we have created a great selection for you all located on our Sale Table in the center of the Bookshop.

This Week in the Bookshop – House of Marbles

We have caught the holiday fever (not nearly as early as the big stores)! We have our Holiday Shoppe all setup and we are so excited to bring you new items from our beloved lines as well as some awesome new stuff. 

One of the new lines we are featuring is House of Marbles.  House of Marbles are makers & purveyors of a world famous range of glass marbles, board games, classic toys, puzzles & pastimes. They have been designing, making and selling fun and entertaining products since 1973, when their founder began making board games in his workshop to sell at local craft fairs in the United Kingdom.

We are carrying their beautiful glass marbles as well as some great games and stocking stuffers. 

Stop by and check it all out!

This Week In The Bookshop – R.I.P. Robin’s Books

We are sad to see the closing of another independent bookstore, Robin’s Bookstore

After 76 years in business Philadelphia’s oldest independent bookstore will be closing its doors forever. 

It begs the question:  What’s it worth to your community, to your common culture, to have an independent bookstore?

We are so grateful to those of you who shop in our store.  We love when you bring your children and grandchildren to read books and play.  We love when you get a cup of coffee or tea and sit in the back and read.  We love it when you come to Open Mic Night and play a song or read a poem.  We especially love when you buy books and tell us how much you love us!

We want to continue to offer you a great selection of books and gifts in a warm and cozy atmosphere.  Our staff loves helping you find just the right book or gift for yourself or your loved one so don’t hesitate to ask for recommendations. 

Please continue your patronage and tell all your friends about us.  We are always open to suggestions as well so if there is anything you would recommend we would love to hear from you.

We will be opening our Holiday Shoppe next month so stop by and see all of the great, hand picked items we will be carrying for the holiday season.
