Greetings, Bookish Art Lovers!

I hope your year is off to an inspiring start.

After lots of holiday traveling, I’m slowly getting my 2018 ducks in a row. New items appearing in my Etsy shop in coming weeks. :0)

For my Lowcountry friends, we’ll be open in downtown Beaufort on February 2nd for  First Friday (5-ish to 8-ish p.m.). Perfect for your literary Valentine shopping!

After that, Spring hours will kick in on Thursdays through Saturdays most weeks. (Just look for my sandwich sign down on the sidewalk. And, remember, my Etsy shop is open 24/7!)

Enjoy lots of cozy reading time this January with a good book, a steaming mug, and your favorite cuddly canine or feline companion.
