Books have always been my friends. Treasures. As soon as I step across the store's threshold, I feel that I am entering a place where books and, in fact, the printed word in its many forms - cards, pamphlets, calendars, diaries - are valued and chosen with thoughtfulness and clear intention. A knowledgeable staff person is always ready to help me find what I am looking for and to provide additional insight, some history, a few anecdotes. And then there are the cards -- I always find the right one!
I love this store! The staff are mellow, yet helpful. I love reading the staff pick reviews, and typically buy a few books a year based on these. Great background music, too--no coffee grinders or blenders.
This gift shop puts customer satisfaction on top of their priority. Went here not knowing what to buy for my kids, but the sales assistant helped me the best way he can. Kudos to him!
