What a week — I feel like I have done nothing but drive around and sell cookbooks out of the back of the car. I suppose there are worse ways to pass the time but, man. I’m tired.
We had a great time at the Hideout Holiday Sale on Tuesday, where we had not just books and prints for sale, but also spiffy new Soup and Bread aprons featuring some bright orange tomatoes ($10). If you missed that sale, there’s another one for all you procrastinators, NEXT Tuesday, 12/22, from 6 to 9 PM.
Sheila and I will also be selling our wares at Schuba’s Indie Arts Market THIS Saturday, 12/19, from 10 AM to 4 PM. And — in further trans-rock-club pollination — on the same day our newly-deputized sales rep Vera will have a stash of books under her table at the inaugural Empty Bottle Farmer’s Market.
On Sunday 12/20, from 1-3 PM, I’ll be hanging out, selling books, and chatting up people about soup at Green Grocer Chicago.
And tonight and tomorrow (12/17 & 18) either I or Sheila or both of us will be hijacking a corner of the merch table at the Hideout Holiday Panto for our own nefarious cookbook-selling deeds.
If for some reason, you prefer to do your Soup and Bread-related shopping without having to endure being badgered to sign the mailing list or get on the soup schedule (not that I blame you) you can also now purchase cookbooks at the awesome Quimby’s Bookstore and, moving at last beyond greater Wicker Park/Bucktown, at Women and Children First.
And that is all.
