New Faces at the Bookery

We apologize for our prolonged silence here on the blog. As you probably already know, our resident blogger has been busy with her new baby. 
Little Lucy, now 2.5 months old, comes to visit the Bookery on occasion....

And meanwhile, there's a new face around these parts. Introducing Darin, Lucy's daddy! 
Darin will be specializing in rare book sales, as well as helping to keep all the books and sections in order.

Come stop by and say hello!
