BellevueGrl isn't just about fashion tips,it's about finding quick tricks,tips,and great buys,where to find the friendliest helpful staff, and where one can just kick back and get pampered.One of my favorite things to do is to unwind at my local coffeeshop or bookstore.
Isn't it funny how a booklover can get lost at Borders or Barnes and Noble????
A book can make us laugh,it can make us cry. A book can inspire. It can be a muse or a catalyst to great things. to a child it can be magical,to the teenager it can create a world beyond,somewhere to escape,and to an adult,it can bring back memories of fond times,of love lost,of triumph.it can teach.even the smell of an old bookstore is something to savor.
Some Great places-
Half Price Bookstore- Redmond large location,books,cds,movies,comics,even bestsellers,you can browse till your hearts content. lot's of great gift ideas. wonderful for books on wine and cookbooks. their sci-fi section is the best I've seen
Borders-Redmond-Friendly helpful staff,knows their merchandise,which scores extra brownie points from me.If they don't have it,they will offer to order it for you. beautiful collection of 2010 calendars.Nice Seattles Best Coffee inside
Barnes and Noble-Issaquah This store is always well stocked. If you can't find it at your local shop,try this one. after shopping a few other locations I was impressed to see that this particular store was up to date on all the hottest items. Extra points...very clean Starbucks inside,they bake cookies fresh there,so be prepared to fall victim to chocolate chip cookies...yum!
Until next time~
