Happy Holidays!


'Tis the Season for Gift Giving at Mrs. Dalloway's

Our bookshelves are nice and full (see below), but we also have lots of other enticements to offer - from ornaments to greeting cards to plants and much more. It's one-stop shopping at its most appealing!



Looking for Special Books for Those Special Someones?  Our Holiday Pick Lists Can Help!

Mrs. Dalloway's experienced and enthusiastic booksellers have compiled two terrific book lists designed to make your shopping easier and more fun. Both our 2019 Holiday Recommendations and Holiday Recommendations for Young Readers feature an array our favorite new titles, fully annotated and in a wide variety of categories, for all ages and tastes - from Art & Photography to Young Adult Graphic Novels. Some picks are national bestsellers, others are lesser-known titles that we think are worth discovering. The books pictured here are just a few examples of the nearly 100 recommendations waiting for you.



Printed copies of both lists are free for the taking and available at the front counter - you'll find them helpful when looking for the right book for the well-read history buff, the cookbook collector, your precocious 10-year-old niece, or any other reader on your list. Come in soon and get inspired!
