You gotta love the summer. There is nothing like being able to take a little time off from work (if you are lucky enough to do so), sit back and relax with a good book. I read three books this summer, which is a lot for me being I did not get to take a formal vacation this year.
I love girlie books that are not quite romance novels but they are the kind of books that get made into movies such as "Bridget Jone's Diary" and "The Shopaholic". A few of us at the shop ended up swapping books back and forth, which made it even more fun because we could talk about the books together. It became sort of our own Book Exchange. That's when I got the idea to start a Book Exchange within our Yardley shop.
For anyone that has been to our PA location, you can see right away that has a "home town" feel to the environment and customers become friends. The Town Center has all the hometown trappings such as a cleaners, wine store, pizza place, a hair salon and of course, us - a flower shop! It's a place where people come and go as they live their lives. That's where the Book Exchange comes in. If they are at the Town Center anyway, why not add a location within our shop that allows people to donate a book and take book? That just sounded like so much fun to me and so starting this September, we will be doing just that. So, if you are in the area and looking for a good read this fall, stop on in. We'll even have free flower for you!
