Tuesdays in my Town - the Bookery
this is the new joint where i work:
the Bookery on Main Street in Placerville.
and i'm not sure if you can tell from the outside, but it just happens to be one of the best used bookstores in the world! (even marya who lives in paris agrees)
at a glance, it might look like a tiny place. but inside it is a maze of wonderfulness that just keeps going and going.
it is very easy to get lost for hours in this maze of incredible books.
darin came by when i was at work the other day and photographed some of his favorite sections, i.e.brautigan below.
the bathroom is papered in bookmarks and ephemera lost inside all the used books they buy.
travel section, just a bit of it.
this is jackie the dog. she is a bookstore dog and the best girl, and there's a shy cat named goldie too.
one of the coolest things about the bookery is that two wise and wonderful women own it.
and they want to teach me.
here they are: celia in lavender in the back, nancy with curly hair front right. that's caroline in coral, who is their go-to lady and nancy's co-book-buyer.
they created this place and have owned it for 27 years; they even own the building.
their ambition and determination inspires me, and i will frankly admit i am proud to be a part of such a magical place!
oh....and i can wear whatever i want ;)
