Most Long Beach residents are familiar with Acres Of Books. It moved here from Ohio in 1934 and was designated a historic landmark in 1960. It closed in 2008, and many many people were saddened by it.
On July 10, they opened their doors for a few hours. Vintage crates were sold for $25 each, and we were able to fill them. It was totally a treasure hunt! Things weren’t too organized, so. We were wandering around the store, just absolutely in awe of the history. Others were running around. Everyone felt like kids.
Very soon, the building will be converted to the new ArtExchange center.

We got AMAZING news today!
Sharreace and Tanya from LB Creative emailed me. At the August 30 mixer, not only will they be showcasing my crafts, but we’re also going to have an area where artists can make cards!
These cards will be donated to local hospitals as part of the Friends Like Us HUGS Program.
In addition, Lisa from the LB Depot For Creative Reuse will be setting up a collection box in her store for cards! So even if you can’t make it to the mixer, you can still donate.
If you’d like more information, please leave a comment.
