Sunday Salon- Portlandia!
Yesterday my husband and I took a drive up north to visit Portland, Maine. A new bookstore opened up- Sherman's Books & Stationery had a grand opening of its new branch on Exchange Street, right in the middle of the shopping heart of the city.
It's a neat store with a great selection of books and gifts. Of course you have to love the chalk signs.
I bought Deathless, by Catherynne Valente, which I've been meaning to buy for ages.
From there we wandered around the city some more-it's been ages since I've been up there- and visited some comic book shops and used bookstores. Jeff got to play a round on a Doctor Who pinball machine, and I came away with a beat up $1 copy of Gone with the Wind for my crafts.
After that we drove back south and headed to Ogunquit, a very lively spot on the coast, for lunch on the beach. I even dipped my toes in the (freezing!) water! So now I can say I've been to the beach this year.
