Crickhollow on the Square


This Saturday, November 7th, we will be selling our goods on the town square in Newnan. We have been invited by Earlene Scott to set up shop for the day outside of her place of business. Scott's bookstore has been a fixture in this town, and indeed in my life, for the past thirty three years. My mother took me there as a child for my first ever book purchase, read about it here...

Ever since then I have enjoyed the perfect customer service and selection of books they provide. These days we always stop in on Saturday mornings after breakfast to peruse the selection and talk for a while with Earlene, she knows everybody and has all the latest on happenings around town. I can't tell you what this place means to me with mere words, yet I think the grin I get from watching Patrick fishing through the books and James crawling around digging through books and toys says it all... Each time I walk through the doors I can't help but feel like I'm that little kid again, and should take off running to check and see what's new on the shelves.

We are setting up a table and will be ready to go at nine Saturday morning, so come on by, say hello and pick up some books for Christmas... It's sure to be a good day...
