UPDATE Saturday, April 19, 2014 We will be closed today, Saturday and tomorrow, Easter Sunday and will reopen on Monday from 10-4. Cynthia and I are both in Johnstown, PA with Cynthia's daughter Emily and her new baby Whitney. It was a rough birth and both are in some peril. Please keep us all in your thoughts and prayers.

At 8 a.m. this morning, we already had 10 Flea Market sellers set up and waiting for you. We expect more. We got really lucky with the weather and it didn't rain last night, the sun is out, and it's going into the 70's. You know you want to come and hang out. Come find a treasure. Check in with your neighbors. Come browse our still huge stock of books, now all 40% off. The Yard Sale is officially open till 1 p.m. but I expect some dealers, enjoying the sun and the sales, may stay longer. Walk a Crooked Mile Books will be here till 6 p.m. tonight.
By the way, Cynthia's grandchildren are coming into town next week for Easter and an Easter Egg Hunt so we will be closed on Easter, Sunday, April 20.
Also wanted to let you know that we have booked a great series of artists for our Mt. Airy Train Station Concert Series. The first concert will be on Friday April 25, from 7 to 9 p.m. with the return of The Knights of Soul featuring the Henry Ave. Horns. What a great rocking way to kick off our season.
