Sandman Books in Michigan
Corner Books: a Sandman Satellite
This isn't quite the update you're looking for (we still haven't found a new home in Punta Gorda) but it's still pretty exciting: we've opened a branch of Sandman in Saugatuck, Michigan! Our new bookshop is located inside the Saugatuck Antique Mall
Our satellite location there will be known as Corner Books (for the late Will Corner, who we all miss tremendously). After the storm, we salvaged a number of carved trim pieces from the wreckage (you may bremember them from the Young Adult section). Will spent many hours hand-painting the flowers and vines onto that trim, and we really wanted to preserve some of his art from the disaster site since he is no longer with us. The beautiful flowered trim pieces have been installed in our new location along with custom shelving in the style to which you're accustomed. We did our very best to create, in this new endeavor, an homage to Florida's largest independent bookshop. The Sandman Books that you knew may be unavailable right now, but you can get a taste of the magic by visiting Corner Books.
And, something many of you have asked for over the years: at Corner Books, there is also coffee. And there's a brewery right next door!
Should you find yourself in Saugatuck please do stop in and visit our new digs. In the meantime, keep your fingers crossed for us to find an opportunity in Punta Gorda! We miss you all.
