Green Expo
Saturday, April 26, 10am-6pm
~ annual Earth Day celebration ~
April 22 is the official Earth Day, and the entire week is full of Earth Day and Go Green celebrations all over the city and country.  Larchmere is no exception.  While Shaker Square boasts a Green Expo with extra vendors at the morning's Farmers' Market, Larchmere continues into the day with sales, programs, and education on what it means to be green within an everyday retail context.  For many of us on Larchmere, that means giving life to old and discarded objects -- i.e., selling used goods, as we do everyday.  But it also means running a business that recycles its waste, makes energy efficient decisions, and keeps your money within the community (statistically, 45% of every dollar spent at a local store stays in that community, as opposed to 13% of every chain store dollar).  All of these factors add up to smaller carbon footprint.  We'll also highlight environmentally-friendly products (like greeting cards made on handmade recycled paper with seeds embedded in the paper, so you can plant the card and watch it grow).  Loganberry Books also extends a 10% discount to anyone who arrives by bicycle, foot or RTA today.  Go Green.

Ann Douglas:  Vintage Children's Things
Annex Gallery Opening Reception
Thursday, May 1, 6-8pm
~ first Thursdays ~
Ann Douglas has been a collector and dealer of vintage things for decades, and she has a soft spot for old children's things:  toys, books, puzzles, dolls, tea sets, games, ephemera, etc.  There comes a time when your personal collection begins to usurp the space in your house however, so Ann has decided to sell some the treasures she has gleaned over the years.  Most of these treasures have been in Ann's personal collection, and as a dealer, you know she's seen some wonderful rarities, oddities and gems.  Now they can be yours.  Annex Gallery show runs May 1-June 2.

Gene's Jazz Hot:  In Concert
Thursday, May 8, 6:30pm-9:00pm

Santa Montefiore,  The Sea of Lost Love
Friday, May 9, 5:30-8 p.m.

Born in England in 1970 Santa Montefiore grew up on a farm in Hampshire and was educated at Sherborne School for Girls. She read Spanish and Italian at Exeter University and spent much of the 90s in Buenos Aires, where her mother grew up. She converted to Judaism in 1998 and married historian Simon Sebag Montefiore in the Liberal Jewish Synagogue in London. They live with their two children, Lily and Sasha in London.  Join us for a wine & cheese reception and a rare American book signing with Santa Montefiore. Sponsored by the English Speaking Union, Cleveland Branch.

Caldecott Collecting
N.O.B.S. Forums 
Thursday, June 19, 7pm

The Caldecott Medal was named in honor of nineteenth-century English illustrator Randolph Caldecott. It is awarded annually by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association, to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children.  This prestigious award has spawned a collectors circle, with the most prized collectible being the first edition of a Caldecott Award winner prior to the application of the gold-foiled Caldecott sticker.  Some of the books are outrageously scarce, and in hot demand.  Listen to the tale of one collector, and the tales most sought-after.
