Some would call them sidelines - things other than books - that we sell at the bookstore. We call them gifts, and have 5 criteria for what we choose to offer to our customers.

1. Does it make us laugh?

2. Is it beautiful?

3. Does it have anything to do with the sheer joy of words and paper and books?

4. Will it make life easier for our customers because it allows for one stop shopping?

5. (again) Does it make us laugh?

So when you come in for a book, no need to leave so quickly. Relax, browse, and enjoy our gift selection. Oh, and Margot picks out the best greeting cards this side of the Hudson.
