Salutations! Please join us for the
Larchmere Flea Market & Festival
Saturday, June 28, 11am-5pm

click for larger imageReturning after its first and phenomenal year, the Larchmere Flea Market & Festival is more than a day of bargains and goodies, but of neighbors, festivities, workshops and camaraderie.  Tucked into corners and lots up and down the 10 blocks of Larchmere Boulevard are 50+ dealers of vintage goods, antiques, art, collectibles, and a special community flea market area.  Community resources, non-profit organizations and green businesses also display information and answer questions.  And food! (did we mention the food?!)!

The Passport Project Global Dance & Music Collective will perform 12-3pm, the Euclid Beach Rocket Car will ride the Boulevard 1-4pm.  A 50/50 Raffle and commemorative bags-with-stuff-sacks provide fun fundraising opportunities.  Workshops and demonstrations enliven the festival flair, including a mask-making workshop, sidewalk chalking, drumming, spinning wool, health seminars, and making silk suncatchers.  Prizes are available to children who come in their Parade the Circle costumes (it's good to have an excuse to wear your costumes again!). 

Loganberry Books features a Local Author Book Fair with 2 dozen authors, including Les Roberts, Gail Ghetia Bellamy, Michael Heaton, Doris O'Donnell, Marian Morton, and a host of others, from 11am-4pm.

The Festival will be a blast.  Come be a part of a thriving city neighborhood that takes a step back in time but is fully planted in the present.

Exciting recent acquisitions

  • Otis.  The most exciting recent acquisition at Loganberry is this adorable little grey fuzzball who greets everybody and plays and purrs and sits in the windows enticing the walkers-by to come in for a closer look (I kid you not).  He is pictured numerously and his name explained on the Loganberry Blog, and we have new, most fabulous, postcards.  If you want a postcard, just let me know where to send it.  [Please note: Otis will not be attending the Flea Market, but he is here most other days.]

  • In memoriam display of Tasha Tudor's books
  • 93% of the 70-year history of Caldecott Award winners on display in chronological order (we've kept the display up from last month's NOBS Forums discussion because it's so impressive)
  • Benjamin Franklin notes and lectures....  in French
  • some nice leather sets, late 19th century
  • more Heritage Press and Library of America boxed classics
  • Les Roberts' latest King of the Holly Hop (he'll be here signing on Sat. 6/28)

Words to Live By

Thursday, July 3, 6-8pm
~ first Thursdays ~
The Contemporary Cloth Artists are local quilt makers who turn the idea of stodgy old quilts upside-down.  By incorporating words, images, patterns and vibrant colors, this quilt show is part textile art, part poetry slam.  Come see the integration of words and texture in this visual treat.  Show runs July 3-August 4.

~ second Thursdays ~
It's a lovely season to relax and listen to jazz....  especially in the warm acoustics of the LitArts room at Loganberry.  Gene's Jazz Hot delivers a happy melodious sound that makes you think you must be on vacation somewhere -- goofing off and not a tad guilty.  And that's a good thing.  Enjoy life.   Donations for the band gladly accepted.

Show and Tell
Thursday, July 17, 7pm
~ third Thursdays ~
After six months of programs, it’s time to let you tell us about your great finds and favorite gems.  It doesn’t have to be rare or expensive, nor do you have to have to know the provenance and history — show and tell is all about learning from the group and sharing your enthusiasm for a curio.  So bring in a book and let’s learn from each other!  Join us.  $3 suggested donation.

Stump the Bookseller  Selection of the month
Stump the BooksellerG477: Girl makes friends with witch who was left by family turns into turtle
A girl becomes friends with a witch who was left in a deserted house nearby. Goes home with the girl, takes the form of maybe a turtle? Goes to school with her and helps with her daily struggles (mean kids, test).  Maybe the witch/turtle name is Merlin?? It maybe also could be Max??? Not sure though.  In the end the witch's family comes back and takes her with them. Read this back in early 80's. Have googled nonstop!! Can't find the name of it!! It is a small chapter book, probably considered juvenile. Thanks for any help!!

Bloomsday Club
Thursday, July 24, 7pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~
Thanks to the folks at Visible Voice Books and Nighttown for the Joyce celebrations!  After the Bloomsday events in June, it's back to the work itself.  We're still somewhere in the midst of the gigantic Chapter 12.  Novices and veterans alike are welcome -- it's a small informal group.  We just sit around and talk about Joyce for a while....

Austeniana Club
Thursday, July 24, 7pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~
We're on the last published Austen novel this month:  Persuasion.  But fear not, the group keeps going, as there are at least 2 fragments of unpublished novels, the Gothic influence of Mysteries of Udolpho, and sequels galore.  In August we'll take on the first sequel known, Sybil G. Brinton's Old Friends and New Fancies, written in 1913.  Come September, we'll read either The Third Sister or Presumption by Julia Barrett.  What fun.
