Cherry Street Books


“Indie Bookstores Are Back, With a Passion” was the title of a recent New York Times article. In it they reported that the American Booksellers Association says the number of indie stores is up 30% since 2009 and that sales at indies were up 10% last year. Let’s keep the trend going in this direction……you can help by shopping often at Cherry Street Books!



We’ve had a number of customers calling or stopping in to ask about a new gadget call “fidget-pro.” We had to look up what they are and we think they’re going to be a big hit! They’re on order in multiple colors and should be here very soon. We’ll announce it on Facebook as soon as they come in, so be sure to check often and please “like” our page if you haven’t already. It’s a great way to keep up with what’s happening here between newsletters.

Our new line of products from Curly Girl have been a hit too. Have you checked them out yet? We have greeting cards, journals and notepads and just got some really cute petite votive candles that are really nice gift for Mother’s Day (May 14th).

    In celebration of Children’s Book Week, we will sponsor a puppet making workshop on Saturday May 6th at 11AM.

    Children ages 3–10 are invited. The workshop will be presented by Jim Black, a song-writer and puppeteer. He was at one time a writer and puppeteer for a children’s TV show called “Quigley’s Village”.
