December News

The halls are all decked, so it must be December!  You can see it right from the moment you come in the door.

Yes, there's Christmas just about everywhere you look in YesterNook right now.

But that's not all that's new in the store.  Not by a long shot.  There's always something happening at YesterNook.

First off, we need to give a slightly belated YesterNook welcome to a vendor who started in November.  Bridgette (Booth 021) is located in the large room called Mayme's Ballroom upstairs.  She's located about halfway down the aisle in that room on the right.

It's going to be a literary weekend at this store this coming Saturday and Sunday, courtesy of the Tiny Bookshop!  We've already announced Chef Nancy Russman's appearance on Saturday, December 15.  On Sunday, December 16, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm, Kadie Engstrom will be on hand to talk about her book, "Pathway Through the Past: A Timeline Tour of Historic Sites in the Louisville Metropolitan Area."  If you are at all interested in historic buildings and locations in Louisville, you do not want to miss this one.

Ms. Engstrom has worked with the historic steamboat Belle of Louisville in several capacities since 1972, and has been Education Coordinator since 1992. Kadie has also developed and facilitated many educational experiences for children and adults. She now chairs the Kentuckiana Heritage Consortium, a networking group of representatives of historic sites in the metropolitan area.

Kadie has woven the stories of these historic sites into her book "Pathway Through the Past: A Timeline Tour of Historic Sites in the Louisville Metropolitan Area." Together with other sites and events, she traces the Louisville-area's history from the late 1700s to the modern day.  It’s a perfect gift to give yourself or someone else, and the proceeds will benefit the work of the consortium. Copies purchased from the Tiny Bookshop in YesterNook will receive a 10 percent discount from
the list price.

The Tiny Bookshop is also located upstairs in Mayme's Ballroom.  It's on the left as you go down the aisle.  You'll recognize it by the distinctive black bookshelves.

If you go downstairs to Lizzie's Lounge, be sure to look into the new Agnes Oakley room.  Located in the side room at the bottom of the stairs, where the Christmas Cavern used to be, this room is now dedicated to antiques and primitives.  There's lots of neat stuff down there.

The room is named for Agnes Oakley, the maternal great-grandmother of YesterNook owner Pattie Cape.

Speaking of space names, next time you are waiting to be checked out, glance up at the wall to the left of the register.  You'll see that the cashier space has now been named for Lonnie, Patti's paternal great-grandfather.

It's been a really busy December so far at the store.  As always, we appreciate your support.  Please keep checking in often.  Vendors bring in new items every day.  If you just can't decide what to get that special person for Christmas, YesterNook also has gift certificates.  Ask about them at the counter.

The store will be open regular hours for the rest of the month, but will be closed December 24 and 25 and also on December 31 and January 1.  We hope all of our YesterNook friends have a happy and safe holiday season.
