You all cannot imagine how much we appreciate being surrounded by folks that truly love local. Around here, we think of it as "Every time you spend money, you're casting a vote for the kind of world you want." Many votes were cast Saturday at our Champagne & Maple Leaves Book Recommendation Party. A packed house listened and laughed as Jenny and Carrie and Jen and Paula and me gushed about the best new books for the season, and then, guess what??  The line at the register was so long that I felt the need to bring over cookies and applesauce cake from our cozy kitchen to break up their wait. You see what I mean?? Everyone was on board - each one of you in that line was voting for the kind of world you want. Us too, we want that world too ... 

so we decided to plan three holiday-themed events that are purely local:

  • THIS THURSDAY AND FRIDAY, September 27-28th at our Wesley Street store, KINFOLK Members will have a private peek at and purchase opportunity of our just-unpacked autumn and holiday hand-made goodies*. Of course we will provide snacks and bevs just for you, beloved KINFOLK, come back to the Reading Room for your private party. If you're not yet a member, sign up here and begin to enjoy PPB Members Only benefits; Kinfolk Membership.

  • On November 9th we are thrilled to host two very very local events - a craft show featuring our most talented most local crafters, and a tree-lighting to celebrate the life of Glen Ellyn's Donna Terbell.
