Where's Charlie?
Books to Benefit Head Start
Go on Sale!

Wednesday, May 6th
12pm
 
We started posting Where's Charlie? photos to our Facebook page in late 2019. Our customers enjoyed the game of finding Charlie in the pictures - and we decided to make a book as a way to support Community Action Head Start!


Where's Charlie?: A Look-and-Find Book is a short photo album with a handmade paper cover featuring artwork by Arden Ellen Nixon and letter pressed by Christopher James at Porridge Papers. Limited to 200 copies. 100% of proceeds will go to benefit Head Start.

Price per copy to be determined.
 
We cannot accept pre-orders for this album.
We need to spend the next few weeks making adjustments to our business model that will allow us to get through this health crisis.
Thank you for supporting our shop and our community efforts!

Please call us at (402) 475-8663 on May 6th to order.

 
Calendar
In-store events for the foreseeable future are postponed.

We look forward to gathering again when this health crisis subsides.
