Thank you Mr. Neil Gaiman. First of all did you know we are trying to bring Mr. Gaiman to the store? and you can help us? Details on our website.
HELLO loyal customers, and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
This is a message for you, that yes there are only 32 days and 14 hours left until Christmas, and only 25 days until Hanukkah starts and it’s okay we got you covered!
Books are the perfect gift, really and we want to help you find that perfect book for the perfect gift!
Our first aid is our winter catalog, that allows you to see top publisher picks for great holiday gifts. We even have it easier than ever before in that you can browse our web version and as easy as clicking on the book you like you can order from our website, pick up and pay in store, have it wrapped and be on your way!
Second, we have our staff picks, books we have read and love dearly and think everyone else should read too. They are always on display and we’re always here to answer questions, hunt for books, order books, and look up reviews to make sure you get the best book!
Third is our events!
We have the Grinch coming to town on November 29th at 10am as a drop in event for kids. At the First Annual Grinch Christmas Party, attendees will make crafts and participate in games that focus on kindness and good will. Children can also nominate their favorite book to be donated to Project Self-Sufficiency, a Northern Colorado nonprofit that creates opportunities for low-income, single parent families. After guests have chosen the book they’d like to be donated, they can hand it over to the Green Man himself, take a photo, and maybe even get a signed copy of How the Grinch Stole Christmas.Tickets for this event cost $5 to cover supplies and snacks for each child. One dollar of each ticket will be donated to Project Self-Sufficiency in addition to the money collected by Old Firehouse Books customers throughout November. Adults do not need tickets to attend, and this means you can have a chance to browse and shop while the kids party with the Grinch!
We also have the Sugar Plum Fairy visiting us for a story time and ballet lesson! This also means you get a chance to sneak away and find some special books for those on your list!
Our final aid is that we sell more than books! REALLY!
We have t-shirts, socks, mugs, wrapping paper, advent calendars, wall art, planners, journals, puzzles, games, note cards, greeting cards, book lights, tote bags and a few other odds and ends I am sure I’m forgetting!
So stop on by, we promise you won’t regret it!
