“We started in June of 2007 on a whim when we couldn’t find a magazine that we were looking for anywhere.  We opened the store with the intention of being a place where print could thrive and we still have that mission today.  Over the years, we have been a hub of activity, hosting events such as art shows, book readings, and parties for the community.  We are proud to be part of the landscape.

We’d love to meet our goal and secure a strong future for print media for the community and beyond! Again, we couldn’t be more grateful for all of your support”
