Today, September 1, 2011, marks the Bookery's 28th anniversary of business in Placerville!
For a little glimpse back in time, here are some photos and clippings from our scrapbook. Please enjoy this little walk down memory lane...
Nancy and Celia opened the store together in 1983 at 316 Main Street (now the location of Hangtown Originals) and moved in December 1984 to 326 Main Street, the freshly renovated site of the Blue Bell Cafe.
Nancy and Celia dedicated themselves for the first few years to building a customer base and finding quality used books in a wide variety to keep return customers excited and satisfied.
It wasn't long before they were celebrating their six year anniversary, below. Each passing year and anniversary marks another celebration of good business practice and the love of books!
And of course, we wouldn't be the Bookery without our loyal animal friends!
We hope that the Bookery will be a warm, inviting and much-loved sight on Main Street for many, many years to come!
