Closing for Inventory!

We will be closed for inventory on January 18th and 19th!  We apologize for the inconvenience, but when we reopen on Monday, the 20th, the store will be tidy and our inventory will be accurate.  No more "I'm sorry, we are supposed to have that book in stock, but we can't find it" (hopefully)!

Christmas Hours

We will be closing at 4 PM on Tuesday, December 24th, and will be closed on Wednesday, December 25th.  We hope that all your days are merry and bright!

It's Waldo time!

Hey, it's July! Do you know what that means??

I'll give you a hint: it means that everyone's favorite be-striped wanderer is hiding out in businesses all over Yakima.

It's time for inventory!

Attention, lovely Friends of Inklings: It's that time of year again. The holiday shopping season has ended, and we've done our best cleaning up, but we have one more step before we can fully rein in the chaos. We'll be closing early today (January 11th) and we'll be closed all day tomorrow (January 12th) so that we can inventory every item in the store. That's right, we'll be handling every single book, every single enamel pin, every single pair of funky reading glasses, to count items and make sure that they are where they're supposed to be.
