Hours for the week of Oct. 3


Portrait of Bonnie with cookbooks

It has been my great pleasure to serve up a delicious selection of cookbooks to customers near and far for the past 24 years.

If you come to the shop, please bring and wear a mask, and preferably not a cloth one. New York City is in the midst of a Covid surge, and almost everyone I know (all double-vaccinated and double-boosted) has gotten sick. For some reason, I haven’t, and I’d like to keep it that way. If you don't have a mask with you, I can supply one for $1.00, refundable with any purchase. Some people turn around and walk out when they hear this, and that’s OK with me. I would like to see the shop’s twenty-fifth anniversary, as well as my sixty-ninth birthday.

And now, back to our story!

Until things are back to normal (pandemic-wise), I continue to offer private “shopportunities!” If you’d be more comfortable being the only customer in the shop, don’t hesitate to MAKE AN APPOINTMENT outside my regular hours. You can have a half-hour or one-hour slot at your convenience and not worry about sharing space with other shoppers. Please call me or send an email and we’ll set up a time.

GIFT CERTIFICATES can be ordered by phone or email. Make an investment in the future for friends and family who can’t shop in person right now.

THANK YOU to everyone who has visited since I reopened, on June 22, 2020. To those who prefer to place email or phone orders, I can still do local deliveries by bike as well as shipping books (as always).

My hours are posted here, and you can also check them by phone. (But NEVER rely on what’s posted on Google—it’s invariably wrong.) Remember that my hours are not the same every single week. If you can’t come in during open hours, make an appointment for a time that works for you.

Did you spend your “lockdown” time sorting and culling your cookbook collection? If you have books you’d like to sell (or donate), please read the guidelines in the right-hand column and get in touch with me before bringing them in.

Looking forward — to everything!
