Check out a new video of our store:
New items you’ll find at Cherry Street:
*All new Ozone sock designs have arrived. The older styles are 1/2 price now, so check out both the old and new when you come in………..it’s sad to think that “sock weather” will soon be here.
*Our card rack is filled with new greeting cards for you. I hadn’t realized how low we were getting, but luckily our vendors respond quickly when I order cards, so there are plenty to choose from now.
*More “notes to self” socks have arrived, including new ones for young couples saying “I am the Bride” and “I am the Groom”…………nice idea for a shower gift!
*Fun new games from BlueOrange company and others. Great family activities as an alternative to videos and electronic devices. We just re-stocked with puzzles too.
*New books are arriving every day, so we’ll never run out of good things to read! We have a nice brochure with wonderful suggestions for book groups; be sure to pick one up.
Cherry Street Books will now be open until 7pm on Thursday evenings.

- September 4 – Booksigning by Author Tim Jollymore
Friday • noon
We welcome author Tim Jollymore to the store. His new book, Observation Hill; a Novel of Class and Murder, is set in Duluth. The police detective featured is Paul Tuomi, a Duluth native with working-class beginnings. He has just been assigned the highest-profile murder case of his career and is also in the midst of investigating the unusual death of a family member. There are many twists and turns in this mystery that includes well known Duluth locations and some real events from the past, even though it is completely fictionalized. It’s always fun to read something set in a city the reader is somewhat familiar with; come in and meet Tim and give Observation Hill a try! We’ll have copies (paperback) available in the store by about August 19.
- September 17 – Wine & Art Crawl
Thursday • 4pm to 7pm
Announcing the Wine & Art Crawl in Downtown Alexandria!
The last of three Wine & Art events is coming up on Thursday September 17th from 4–7 PM. To participate in wine tasting, you must start at the AAAA Theatre and purchase a $5 wrist band. Be sure to pick up a map of participating downtown locations too. An artist will be featured at each participating store — look for a sign on the front door or window. This was a very popular event when it was introduced last summer, so we anticipate a good crowd again this year. Find a few friends to come along, and enjoy a nice time downtown!
