Bookmark It a bookstore plans to open in East End Market at 3201 Corrine Drive [GMap] early next year.
They will occupy the space in the first bay on the second floor of the market and will also have a book cart that will make an appearance in the downstairs area on the weekends.
Owner Kim Britt tells Bungalower that the store will “champion the local writing community and extend the East End Market’s philosophy of buying local to include the written word and…carry a selection of books that support the individual missions of the market’s other vendors.”
Britt says while the selection will be limited due to space it will be curated and will vary based on the needs of events, workshops, book clubs and the needs of other East End vendors.
To get things kicked off Bookmark It is hosting a book fair next Sunday, December 15.
The event takes place on both floors of East End and will feature local publishers and authors.
