The new bookshelves are here! The new bookshelves are here!

Dear Reader -  With a boatload of thanks to my friends Paul and Dan Somerset (who lovingly schlepped them all, and then some, back from DC), Phil Kless (who helped me do an emergency assembly round for the last batch), and Randy Burton (who's responsible for them looking so mind-bogglingly level and even and being solid as solid can be), I am now ready to celebrate the installation of biblion's bookshelves! Hooray! Let the book sorting begin!:

Oh! And we had our first sale! (I gotta admit that I did a little happy, clappy dance all the way home!) A friend stopped by to consult with me on my fabric choice for our Duncan and Phyfe chairs, and said friend found the perfect card for his/her Valentine! (Being intentionally vague here, 'cause I don't wanna blow his/her Valentine's Day cover.)

My register's not up and running, yet, but it still holds the money just fine:

So, all you Valentines out there: know that you can stop by anytime the lights are on and pick out the perfect one for yours from the rack by the door:

Just knock. I'll be in there behind the paper in the windows, hanging with my lady friends who're helping me sort and shelve all those cases of books. We'll see if we get enough done this week to be able to open - even if it's super-squishy soft!

And let's have a love song to go along with that happy, clappy dance, shall we:

Heck, who else but King's gonna give you "mouth," "spouse," and "house" in a rhyme?

Happily  - Jenny
