Iceland has a tradition of giving books on Christmas eve, known as Jolabokaflod.
What a desirable tradition, we should adopt it at once!
To aid your taking up of this idea, on Sunday 25th November, 3-6pm, for those within reach of South East London, join us at an ‘at home’ with Arachne, come round to ours for tea and cake, and the opportunity to browse books and buy as many as you can carry!
The stupendously easy way to do your christmas/solstice/Jolabokaflod shopping in comfort.
RSVP! (So we know how many cakes to make – yes gluten-free option – maybe vegan something or other, might not be cake though.)
Optional £5+ donation to our crowd fund for those responding before 4pm on Tuesday 20th November.
A slight change of pace from all the frenetic DUSK activity – I will be having a stall at Blackheath Conservatoire 19-21 Lee Road SE3 9RQ TOMORROW SUNDAY 17th December, selling books! If you are in the area drop in for a chat.
Unlike last weekend it is indoors and having seen some of the other stallholders work, I shall have to lock the cash away very firmly so i don’t spend it all on last minute gifts.
Thinking you’ve left it too late to send an Arachne book to a loved one, or to get it delivered to you in time to wrap it up?
All our books post as large letters, so we can get it them the post TODAY or Monday and it should in theory arrive in time. And if you live sufficiently local to us, we’ll hand deliver – provided your letter box will take an A5 envelope. (SE3, SE4, SE6, SE9, SE10, SE13, SE14, SE23, SE26)
Or you can come along to Solstice Shorts on Monday and pick up an armful!
