September at the Old City shop

Hello again from our Old City store, Dear Reader. The angle of the sun has been gradually shifting, and its warmth is now joined by the cool breezes of approaching autumn. We just got through our first Back to School rush, and have been enjoying the subtle shift in energy around the city as everyone seems to be settling in to their new routines. Both the Old City and Rittenhouse shops, along with the online store, are looking really good lately; currently jam packed with a small mountain of new books and stationery arrivals. (Can you believe we've got another round of dated planners and calendars coming for October?) We're really enjoying our September so far. How about you?
