|Collection of mini Dr. Seuss books. My faves!|
So not only do you get a little retail therapy - but you also get to stimulate the economy. And me, I'm just doing my part to save the world, folks. Yup, one twenty dollar bill at a time!
Past winners have been RJ Julia Booksellers in Madison, Flutterby in Guilford, the Bethany Farm Market in Bethany, Sweet Cioccolata in Wallingford, the Sweet Shoppe in East Haven, CT, and Something of Bev's in Milford, CT.
If you've never been to Books & Company it is definitely worth the trip! This little store sells high quality used books, with children's books, fiction and non-fiction, great literature, and everything in-between!
What's more, they even support other local artists in the form of jewelry, photography and prints, and MORE!
Here's some pictures of today's visit!
Row after row of books! And fun items for the wee ones!
There's something for everyone at Books & Company to browse through!
Suggested readings - and lots of them!
There's even a little gourmet coffee shop on premise...where your friendly waitstaff will serve up some delicious concoctions...and then, if you're nice, she'll even share them with you!
To add some extra special pizazz to today's Cash Mob CT - there was even live entertainment!
The cowboy purchased a new cookbook!
And then he made me look through it before we left in hopes that I'd cook something up for tonight's dinner!
He must be dreaming or something. Wake up, honey, wake up.
If you have a chance - take a trip to Books & Company in Hamden CT, and try to always support local business! Remember that for every $20 that is spent at a local retailer, $13.60 will return to the community through taxes and payroll!
And Cash Mob makes a difference! The folks at Books and Company report [we had] "the highest daily sales volume by far in our nearly 18 years in business!"
