Bluebird Books hosted an artist’s reception for my friend, Jocelyn Woodson, Friday evening. Jocelyn does amazing artwork and she is the featured artist in the bookstore this month.
Jocelyn and Melanie, the owner, were discussing the finer points of art display in cool bookstores, or something else. I don’t know. I wasn’t really eavesdropping (for a change!).
All of this was accompanied by music!
Bluebird Books is a new addition to Hutchinson’s Downtown, and it’s marvelous. Not that I want to make you jealous of our bookstore, but just look at it.
I suppose I could love this red chair more, but I’m not sure how. It’s just lovely and perfect in every conceivable way.
And check this out. You can sit in a comfy chair up front and occasionally glance around and check out what’s happening on Main Street.
You’ll also be able to see the book tree to your left, right by the front door. It was a Christmas tree, now it’s a spring tree, complete with chia bunny. I’m kinda in love with chia bunny, for reasons I can’t explain.
This is over near the cookbook sections. Swoon!
The wall beside the cash register has a collection of bluebird art. You’ll also find bluebirds all around the store.
The wall behind the cash register is this wonderful collection of doors – so cool.
At the end of the night, Jocelyn and I took a moment to sit in those comfy chairs up front and soak it all in. Of course, Jocelyn has on the stylish boots, and I have on the wrinkly socks. Why do I post things like that, anyway? There’s probably a psychological dissertation in there somewhere.
