Folks in the DC area, esp by Silver Spring: If you want to buy people books for any of the gift-giving holidays coming up, check out Loyalty Bookstore in Silver Spring. 931 Ellsworth Dr. walking distance of Red Line staton.
It’s a popup store through December being run by an old friend of mine, longtime bookseller. Support a local black-woman owned business if you can. It has mainstream stuff and more.
@platypus I'll try to get up there and check it out!
@platypus I should send you some money and have you buy me something :)
@zladuric alas I don’t live near there any more. I did for years
glammr.us is a space for folks interested in productive conversation about, well, galleries, libraries, archives, museums, memory work and records. It is pronounce “glamorous” as our work are often charmingly or fascinatingly attractive, especially in a mysterious or magical way. Sometimes it is also full of excitement, adventure, and unusual activity (oh, yes). It is also inspired by Toys’R’us to showcase the fun playful side of glammr.us tooters. But you don't necessarily have to only post about GLAMMR-related topics, bring your whole self. Talk about fun things you saw, your exciting day or even your struggles. Many of us are Twitter refugees looking for an inclusive and community supported approach to social media. If any of these things sound good to you, consider joining us by contributing as little as a $1 a month on patreon to help keep our server online. Take a look at our code of conduct.
