Thanksgiving News from the Red Canoe Bookstore Cafe

Hi everybody and happy almost Thanksgiving!

We have much to be grateful for, much to give thanks for and much to look forward to. It is our favorite holiday (yes, Peter DOES like to cook) and I look forward to having a day with my family. We will be open on Wednesday until noonish so you can pick up your holiday muffins to eat, to give, to take with you out of town. Thursday we will be closed but on Friday it is back to our regular hours because I also look forward to having time with our Red Canoe customer family, too!

This Saturday 11/27 also marks the return of our small and lovely artisans’ market. We are partnering with Studio C Jewelry and Gifts to present some of the loveliest handmade pottery, jewelry, and gifts. 9 to 4 pm Saturday 11/27! Bring your appetite on Friday Saturday or Sunday and we will fuel you for your shopping and touch football expeditions!

All here, where we belong—right at Red Canoe, with the best neighbors and some pretty good food, books, and coffee. Come on by and start the holiday season in the neighborhood!
