Nose to the Grindstone at Old Scrolls Book Shop

Remember my previous post on the reading garden under construction at Old Scrolls Book Shop?  We’ve been busy working on that project, and I decided it was time to share some more photos.  In-between waiting on customers and shipping books, Ron has been working on this pretty much single-handedly.

Here are some before and after shots…

We’ve also had some delightful book customers this week, from as far away as Cleveland, Ohio and from the Hudson Valley area of New York.   Hopefully by the time the leaves turn to red and gold, and the view of the Bristol Hills is at it’s most beautiful, our new reading garden will be ready for customers to enjoy!

Finally, a few highlights of some first editions we’ve sold this week:

Inside Safari Hunting, Dennis Holman, 1970, NY: G. P. Putnam’s Sons

A Kiss Before Dying, Ira Levin, 1953, NY: Simon & Schuster

The Education of A Poker Player, Herbert O. Yardley, 1957, NY: Simon & Schuster

South of the Sahara (signed copy), Attilio Gatti, 1945, NY: Robert McBride

A Rumelheart Must Roam, Maude Smith Delevan, 1939, NY: Frederick A. Stokes.

And now, some customers are coming up the path, so I will leave you until the next post…
