Attention, shoppers!  It's that time of year again... inventory time. We hate to miss seeing your lovely faces for even a day, but we have to get the store back into shipshape order so that we know exactly what's in the store, and where it all is.  To make this possible, we'll be closing at 5 PM on Friday, January 12th and will be closed all day on Saturday, the 13th.  We'll be open regular hours (12-6) on Sunday the 14th, and we can't wait to see you then!

Santana's Book Drive - Success!!!

I'm so happy to announce that we hit our donation goal for Santana's Book Drive!  Next, we'll be ordering books and distributing them to first graders across the Yakima School District!  Be sure to check back for updates.  We'll share reactions from local kids, their teachers and families as we are able.  We are so grateful to our friends for coming out in droves to support the Moras' beautiful endeavor!

Find Waldo Local!

July is almost here, and that can only mean one thing:  It's time to find Waldo in Yakima!  2017 marks the 30th anniversary of the Where's Waldo books, and we're celebrating in style.  There are new businesses to search and tons of prizes to be had.  And at Inklings, you can search for Waldo's friend Wenda in addition to Waldo himself.
