'Tis the season to be shopping
And we thought the snow came early last year!
Last week as I built a mountain of fake snow in my window it was a blizzard outside – perfect really.
The Christmas window is done, the store bedecked with boughs and lights. All of our Christmas books, cards, advent calendars, puzzles are in stock.
The 2015 Friendship Books are here, and calendars and date books for the coming year.
We have some wonderful new Christmas books for children and fresh stock of many quality toys.
New this year are two wonderful children’s books – new editions of old classics
Roger Duvoisin’s The Night Before Christmas by Clement C Moore, originally published in 1954 this vintage edition is the most perfect version of this Christmas classic.
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer by Robert L May was first published in 1939, and this year has been beautifully illustrated by Antonio Janvier Caparo in a new edition for a new generation.
Also in stock is the 2014 Giller award winning novel Us Conductors by Sean Michaels – and The Back of the Turtle by Thomas King, winner of the 2014 Governor General's Literary Award for Fiction.
We are now open on Sunday from 11 - 4, ready to help you find something for everyone on your list this Christmas!
