Hundreds of different cassettes on hand (just ask to peek in the closet). Full disclosure: the music from several of these artists are on my mp3 jukebox.

Unique Book Marks and Post Cards

frlpcbmDolores Guffey has provided the Serendipity Book Store with a great new batch of unique and classy book marks saved from distressed books that were headed to recycle.

Along with the ‘new’ vintage book marks, Dolores is providing Serendipity with ‘new’ vintage post cards salvaged from the covers of distressed books.

FYI, Dolores Guffey is a local artist who regularly has displayed her book works at the Humboldt County Library, along with her fellow book artists.

Drop by, take a look. Pick up a book mark or post card for yourself, or for that book lover in your life. Thanks, Dolores!

Fresh Stock of Music CDs
