April showers today, again, and another dreary day. It feels like a very long and slow spring. But, our year end and inventory are complete and the store is filling up again. This week we have received new greeting cards and art supplies and of course an increasing selection of wonderful books!
May will be here before we know it along with the return of those who have gone south for the winter – and we will be ready.
We have a lovely assortment of Easter books for little people, a great selection of board books for babies, and novels for the older kids.
