Yellow Dog Birthday Bash!

We want to write more about our first year of owning a bookshop… so hopefully in the next couple of days we’ll manage to do it!  But for now… here’s a glimpse into our Birthday Bash!  We gave away pies made by Peggy Jean’s Pies (a local Columbia favorite); had live music by the coolest kid in town (he’s so cool he only goes by one name… Anders); face painting & kids crafts rounded out our party.

We have the best customers ever and as usual they came out to support us!  This year has been a whirlwind and we couldn’t ask for a better community to be involved in… we love CoMo!

Our First Story Time @ Yellow Dog Bookshop

A big hearty thank you to Captain / Librarian Julie Barnett, for docking her ship and being with us on dry land long enough to read some PIRATE themed stories in early celebration of Talk Like A Pirate Day! We learned that treasure is more than just money… BOOKS… are also currency on the high seas… (thank your local librarian next time you see her/him- they do SUCH a good job!).

We will have Story Time once a month to start (and hopefully more as we go along!).

The next one will be October 12th at 4pm!

And thanks, Kelsey Kupferer, for capturing the magic of our first Story Time at the Yellow Dog Bookshop!
