Why does no one talk about Eborn Books when they talk about SLC? I am from Boise and we have some great bookstores. In fact sometime in the near future we may be referred to as A City of the Book (for many reasons). But if Eborn Books doesn't begin to qualify SLC as a City of the Book then its only because people don't know about Eborn. Is it their marketing department? I am now working near SLC and am surprised that Eborn is not a household name. What a huge and magnificent bookstore. They are like the Strand of SLC. They need to make shirts and sell them. I can wear ten of them. They need to be in more people's vocabularies. Eborn books is the place! Come on people!
I have been shopping at Children's Hour for several years. I love this store. The merchandise is special - very unique! The staff has always been very friendly and helpful. I especially like it when the owner is there as she goes out of her way to help me find the the type of item I am wanting that day.
How long does a NEW age last anyway? Good selection of books, tapes, jewelry, fountains, yoga stuff, etc. and a good restaurant attached as well. I've never found the staff particularly warm to match the products, but that's ok.
