You don’t look a day over 83

September 28, 2007

Shelf Awareness’ lead story on Wednesday was Stacey’s Bookstore in San Francisco celebrating it’s 84th birthday. 

Ingrid Nystrom, marketing and events manager at Stacey’s, noted that the store had a big 80th anniversary party and will have another major one next year. “But last year we decided that once you’re over 80, every year is a gift and needs some recognition. . . .

Can I add a hearty “amen” to that? For a proud independent like Stacey’s, every day should be a celebration. Every visit I make to the city by the Bay simply must include a visit to this fabulous store. I always find wonderful staff suggestions for fiction reads, and can usually pick up some history and travel memoirs as well. Plus, they have a wonderful tech section, not an easy thing to find in this day and age. Congrats to everyone at Stacey’s and here’s to 84 more years (and then some).
