Daylight Savings Time has started once more, giving us a glimpse of warmer and brighter times ahead. We’ll be freshening up our displays with new product, doing our spring cleaning in all our sections, and preparing our sidewalk sale carts to go outside on the first of April… as long as we don’t have another April Fool’s snowstorm like we did in 1997!
As another sign that Spring will soon be here, we have brought in a new selection of seasonal kitchen towels by local crafter Katie Giroux.
Our thanks to everyone who came out this past Saturday to meet Tom Straw, the author of THE BUZZ KILLER as well as the Nikki Heat novels by Richard Castle. We are working on bringing in even more mystery writers in the months to come.
As a reminder, the majority of our events here at ABSW are free and open to the public. Check out our page on SocialWeb.net!
