We know it's only March but Independent Bookstore Day is fast approaching and we can't contain our excitement for this year's celebration. We have many bibliophile ideas in the works so stay tuned! In the meantime, you can show off your indie love with one of these totes. They're extra special because you can only find them at independent bookstores and once they're gone, they're gone for good!
We have all the limited edition items that will be for sale on Independent Bookstore Day listed on our website for your viewing pleasure but, like previous years, we can't sell them until April 27th and they're not available online or at big-box stores. Check out what we have coming!
All 2019 calendars are half-off while supplies last!
St. Piran's Day is coming!
Saturday, March 9th from 9:30 - 11:00 at the Grass Valley City Hall Parking Lot
The Cornish, once the world’s preeminent hard-rock miners, came from their homeland of Cornwall, England with the know-how to tap the deep veins when gold in quartz was discovered near Grass Valley. St. Piran is to Cornwall what St. Patrick is to Ireland. In history, he brought Christianity to the Celtic land in the 5th century. In legend, he outwitted menacing giants and taught the Cornish to refine tin. The Cornish flag, a white cross on a black field, is called “St. Piran’s flag.”

St. Piran’s Day begins with the bell and call of the Town Crier and raising of the U.S. and Cornish flags. The Grass Valley Male Voice Choir will lead singing of the “Star Spangled Banner” and “Trelawny,” the national anthem of Cornwall. Following that there will be the Pasty Olympics and a pasty baking competition
Bring a home-baked pasty to the judging table by 9:15 to enter the pasty bake-off. Tess’ Kitchen Store will award $50 gift certificates for the “Best Overall” and “Best Traditional” pasty. Coffee and snacks will be available for purchase at a Cornish gift fair, also in the parking lot at South Auburn and Main streets.
