When you can’t find time to comb your own hair you realize, perhaps, one should slow down. But there are so many fun things to see and do and eat-places to go and books to read-so, for the record, Dreadlocks are back in style! (I know all 10 of my good friends who are hairdressers and stylists are getting ready to blow up my phone with angry texts 🙂 )
Yes, I did wait till 6 days before Halloween to post the Halloween menu but I am also EARLY with the Thanksgiving menu and for that there should be at least a 1/2 point awarded.
We are, frankly, astounded at how busy September and October were. I have been working on this Island since 1997 and I have never seen it this busy. It’s so fun! It’s almost like full-time town now. #teatuesday is going well-and while a few grumble that it is only beverages and books on Tuesday, most seem content with being able to amble about with a beverage and peruse the stacks on an otherwise mundane day.
We have packed the store with our take on Halloween necessities and pumpkin perfection! This week all Halloween books, new and used are 31% off. We have some FANTASTIC witch books and ghost stories in there!! Ruth Chew (The ednesday Witch) Betty MacDonald (Mrs. Piggle Wiggle). Our indomitable Claudia made some super-adorable Halloween signage from Island salvaged pallets-forgo the mass-produced “made in China” one’s they are hawking at Home Goods- and Lumina Embroidery made the CUTEST candy corn bibs!
