UNIQUE HAND CRAFTED SOUTH AFRICAN POTTERY
We've just received a terrific shipment of pottery from Potterseed in Capetown, South Africa. The designs are crafted by artisans who use the textile tradition of Africa as their inspiration. The colors and shapes are stunning, each one is unique and hand painted. We have large platters and bowls that are worthy of passing down to the next generation as well as smaller decorative pieces. We won't be getting another shipment before the holiday, so for best selection come by soon!

WHERE'S WALDO? HE'S HIDING IN THE ELMWOOD!
It's our annual Find Waldo in the Elmwood event, and we invite kids of all ages to participate. Here's how it works: first come to Mrs. Dalloway's and pick up your Waldo Passport; it lists all of the merchants that have hidden a small cardboard cutout of Waldo in their store or restaurant. Your job? Find Waldo in as many places as you can and, when you do, get your passport stamped by the business. When you've accumularted at least 20 stamps, return the passport to Mrs. Dalloway's to claim your "I found Waldo" and a $1 Off coupon PLUS be entered in a drawing for a deluxe set of Waldo books and other prizes donated by local merchants. Then mark your calendars for Saturday, August 4 at 4pm when we'll be having our big Waldo Prize Drawing party here at the store
It's Easier Than Ever to Give Children in Your Life the Gift of Books!
Start a library for the young reader in your life with Mrs. Dalloway's Little Library subscription service!
We've made it easier than ever to sign up and tell us about your young reader's interests, allowing our expert staff to choose books that will engage and delight. If you look on the left-hand column of this page, you'll see a Little Library link — simply click on the image (or the one below) to be taken to our Subscription page.
The response to the program thus far has been most gratifying, and we appreciate getting notes like this from a mother with a 9-year-old boy who loves fantasy: "Thank you for all of your effort on this. It has been a wonderful experience for him."
WEEKLY STORY TIME - Thursdays at 10:30am
We read a mix of classics and new favorites for ages 2-5, but everyone is welcome.
