As of yesterday, we’ve been open for three weeks, and we’re already feeling SO grateful.

In three weeks we’ve sold books to over 200 people. In three weeks, we’ve made a lot of new friends. In three weeks, we’ve learned a lot about running a bookstore!

We had a grand opening, and we celebrated our first Small Business Saturday, and both were amazing. We’ve had one customer come see us four times already! We’ve loved meeting other small business owners as well as staff from Greater Lafayette Commerce. We’ve been visited by Indiana authors like the lovely Sarah Layden. We’ve had friends and family come from far and near to see our store. Thanks to everyone who has made these first three weeks feel like a blessing.

This weekend we decked out the place with holiday cheer, and we’re hoping to have a successful first holiday season. As today is the beginning of Advent (for those who celebrate Christmas), we wanted to highlight some of the best gifts to give and share this year, no matter your beliefs. Follow along on our Facebook and twitter (@2ndflightbooks) as we show you why we’re stocking stuffer central!

Here’s a peek at our first highlighted item, the library card winter scarf!
