In this day of fierce competition among bookstores and closing of some independent stores, it is heartening to see an independent bookstore reopen. The Curious Cup of Carpinteria, once downtown and then merged with a toy story, has reopened it’s doors in a new Carpinteria, CA. location. A small space near The Market Place eatery at 3817 l/2 Santa Claus Lane, it is only open Thursday to Saturday from 10AM to 6PM and on Sunday from 10AM to 5 PM.
I visited Kiona’s new space last weekend and delivered some of my children’s books. I’ll be doing an event there on Saturday, June 6. Phone Kiona at 404-396-7008 for more information.
