A huge thank you to everyone who came out to see us Friday night during Holly Jolly! We handed out hundreds of cookies, poured gallons of hot cider, signed lots of books and met so many amazing people. Excitement for the store filled our hearts (and our empty space).
Cole and I cannot wait to move permanently to Black Mountain and start putting the store together.
Answers to questions everyone asked:
We hope to open February 17 with a “soft” (practice) opening on Saturday, February 3, 2018.
Yes, we are a “real” bookstore! New books. I’m getting ready to order 3500+ titles so our shelves will be stuffed full of books in all genres. Interested in a particular genre? Contact me and let me know!
We will have a COFFEÉ in the store. Like a cafe but with coffee. We are working with Dynamite Coffee and will be serving espressos, lattes, soft drinks, tea, hot chocolate and baked goodies.
We will also be carrying greeting cards, a wide array of bookish gifts and goodies perfect for those strange people who don’t like to read, and will have plenty of seating. Our hope is that you will come have a cup of coffee, pick out the perfect book and meet some of your neighbors for a chat about life and love.
Look for lots of author events, book signings and other fun happenings. We will be having regular storytimes for the little ones and are planning to have a Sassafras Book Club. Make sure you sign up for our newsletter so you don’t miss out on anything coming up!
We will be hiring and are looking for friendly, responsible people who love books! Stop by the store starting in early January and we’ll chat.
Thanks again to everyone who came out to welcome us!
