This week I'm celebrating Indie bookstores (again)!
Last weekend, I dragged my family downtown for Small Business Saturday to shop at Unabridged Books in Chicago. This bookstore was highly recommended by two of my city friends, Karyn Keenan and Lea Kelley. We really only focused on the children's book section but I'm completely in love with this place. They had so many books and all sorts of little notes about them. It was completely charming. I wish I had been able to look around more but it was a bit crowded and I was trailing my kiddos as they searched for books they wanted.
Both kids were so proud of their book purchases. We crossed the street to get hot chocolate and read our books. I'm looking forward to visiting Unabridged Books again!
What are you celebrating this week?
