Happy birthday to Cranesbill Books!

Cranesbill Book and Toy Store. Photo by Kim Dosey, 2007. All rights reserved.One of my favorite stores in town, Cranesbill Books, is celebrating their 4th anniversary this weekend. They will be having special guests, live music, a variety of activities and yummy food. Be sure to check it out!

"Four Years and Counting" (Cranesbill Chronicle Blog) - Janet Loveland, owner of Cranesbill Books, reminisces about the store's first days and invites you to the celebration weekend.

In addition to planning their own birthday party, the folks over at Cranesbill have been busy, busy, busy planning other a full line up of activities for the spring. I could write the longest blog post ever if I listed them all here, so here is a brief summary what's going on at the store in the coming months:
  • Cranesbill's anniversary celebration begins the evening of February 29 at 7 p.m. and continues throughout the day and evening on Saturday, March 1.
  • Friday Night Film Screenings begin Feb. 29 at 7 p.m. in Cranesbill newly revamped second floor, and happen every Friday night through May. Topics include family films, fun films, thought-provoking films, old classics and more.
  • Mom's Night Out - a new on-going event with a different topic each month. March will be "women business owners" and yours truly will be there to help represent that demographic in the Chelsea community.
  • Monthly themes with special activities and store events. March is "Dummies" month.
  • Canine Corps is a newly formed group for people who love their dogs. In case you didn't already know this tidbit, one of Cranesbill's familiar faces is Jeremy Montange who is a professional dog trainer and is sometimes referred to as Chelsea's very own 'dog 'whisperer'.
And in Other News....
There has been a huge influx of spring events recently added to the Things To Do In Chelsea website in the last couple weeks. I'm busily making my way through the stack and am getting really excited about all the neat things going on in town.

Tomorrow, I'll be posting about another of my favorite stores, The Garden Mill. They are also celebrating this weekend with their annual open house.

Be sure to check out all the happenings the library this month. The annual Chelsea Reads Together program began this week. The topic is Immigration: The Shaping of America. That too, deserves it's own blog commentary. But in the meantime, you can find all the details on the Chelsea Reads Together page on the library's website.

Sounds like Saturday will be a good day to meander around downtown Chelsea. :)
