  1. A discovery - the curated, true used book store, the very one exalted and presumed dead - exists! I'm a newcomer to Hastings and an uninformed one at that but I look forward to visiting your store soon.
    It was good to meet you across the two backyards and our shared non-indigenous Norway Maples today.
