This blog, published free of charge since September 2007, is a way for me to stay in touch with seasonal bookstore visitors from afar and with all customers and friends when I am closed during the winter. My annual seasonal retirement will begin this year on November 1, and I expect to be back in spring of 2021, as early as May 15, if possible. Meanwhile, thank you so much for following Books in Northport and for supporting Dog Ears Books.

More Small Town Seasonal Warmth

variety of materials and textures. The name of her shop is Dolls and More, with
an accent on the More.

About the time I was leaving, Sally’s first customers had come for potluck lunch and a class in handmade greeting cards. A congenial proprietor and welcoming atmosphere make 102 Nagonaba (annex entrance on Mill Street) a magnet for local crafters and shoppers. In Northport, friends are customers, and customers become friends.
