Here at the Shop

Greetings, Friends!

As we head into the holidays, we want to catch you up on new arrivals here at the store and to say how grateful we are for your continuing patronage.
As you might expect, we have lots of new books, plants, and accessories for all our gardening friends. One must-see title is the striking and beautifully illustrated Private Gardens of the Bay Area. If you need cooking inspiration, we've got all kinds of enticing new cookbooks, from Alison Roman to Yotam Ottelenghi, with aprons and implements to go with. Tabletop decor comes in the form of linens, candles, vases, and potted flowers. Paperwhites are here, the ornament table is up, and we have a great selection of holiday cards. You can make a cozy reading nest with a lambswool throw and a pot of tea. Our Dapper Den features beautiful silk ties, "manly soaps," and useful tools. In other words, we're stocked and ready for the season, eager to help you find just the right gift for the people on your list.








So come on by to say hello, browse, and pick up our adult and children's Holiday Recommendations lists. If you can't get here (or can't find parking), remember we offer free delivery in the Elmwood and Curbside Pickup. Our online store is open 24/7, of course.


If you're looking for some ideas for gift giving, here are some of the bestselling titles in our store over the past month or so. Some of them may go out of stock before December 25th, so we urge you to shop early if any of these books strike your fancy. And as always, we offer free gift wrapping!



Mrs. Dalloway's Little Library             









Help start a library for the young reader in your life with Mrs. Dalloway’s Little Library subscription service! Tell us the age of the child you’re shopping for and a little about his or her interests, then let us choose one book to send each month that will surprise and delight. Our team includes a children’s librarian, an experienced kids-book buyer, and a new mom.  Rather than relying on the old classics, we are all devoted to finding the best new titles and rediscovering hidden gems. Our aim is to send stories that excite children’s interest in books and energize the adults who read with them. Each month we’ll send you an email with information about the book we’ve sent, and your recipient will get a new story, beautifully packaged and ready to read over and over again. For more information, email us, give us a call, or come by the store.
