Welcome February

  Ah February...the green fuse of spring is lit.  How lucky are we? The earth is moist, the birds are chirping, and the days are perceptively longer, not to mention, warmer. Getting out to pull a few weeds is enough to help us remember to be grateful for the rain and slow down a bit.  Pink blooms begin just as Valentine's Day approaches.  We've got fabulous cards by local artists to help you express your innermost self.  You'll find champagne flutes to celebrate in style, the perfect cookbook and a handsome apron for someone who loves to cook, fun and funky jewelry to add a little sparkle for someone special.  When the rains return, tuck in with a good book: Sissinghurst by Vita Sackville -West and Sarah Raven or Oudolf Hummelo by Piet Oudolf are two that will take you to the best gardens in Europe while you wait to get back outside.

  As always, our able staff with delight in finding the perfect mystery or novel for you or someone you love.  Spring is around the corner, everywhere you look...come help us celebrate!

Few could explain, let alone seek out, a career in criticism. Yet what A.O. Scott shows in Better Living Through Criticism is that we are, in fact, all critics: because critical thinking informs almost every aspect of artistic creation, of civil action, of interpersonal life.
