Books on 7th


We've signed a lease, and tomorrow we meet with the landlord to note any damage to the space and get the keys. Then, the fun can begin.. moving shelving and books and stand-ees and bookends and posters and books and the big table and the desk and books and.. and..

I keep thinking of more things I'll be needing over there. Of course, we already have all of it, it's just a matter of getting it into a box and moving it 4 blocks. I have been hoping we'll have dry weather and can move most everything by foot, on a handtruck. It'll be nice bragging rights to say this was an entirely Green move.

Stay tuned, I'll have more pictures tomorrow!

Tammy, do you notice a similarity between the arches/columns on the new place and your SL bookstore?

Thanks, Brian!

Alicia, I really couldn't be more thrilled with the location. Well, it could be bigger... but now we can aspire to be Hoquiam's Smallest Bookstore!

Unfortunately it is about a bazillion miles from the edge of the Green Swamp, heart of the Floridan Aquifer (which is one big, abused aquifer), to Hoquiam, Washington. Otherwise I would be there to help.

Congrats on the new digs.
