  1. I just looked up the store’s web site and checked the address. Yes it’s in Brooklyn. I live in Brooklyn also, but it would take the better part of an hour to get there from Sheepshead Bay. LOL Opposite sides of the Borough.

    I’ll try to visit when I can.

  2. That looks like a great bookstore indeed! :D I like their logo too, very fun.

  3. It would be physically impossible for me to pass that store and not go in. It looks charming.
