A Holiday Invitation

Are you braving the crowds tomorrow for a head start on your holiday shopping?  Well the masterminds at Plaid Friday suggest shopping indie this season.

The name Plaid Friday celebrates the diversity and creativity of independent businesses. Plaid Friday is the fun and enjoyable alternative to the big box store "Black Friday", and is designed to promote both local and independently owned businesses during the holidays. 

Plaid Friday was conceptualized in Oakland, CA, a city known for strong shop local campaigns. Plaid Friday brings back the nostalgic times when shopping for friends and family was a pleasurable leisurely activity.

So as you settle in for some football, maybe a snooze after all that great food, we here at Third Place Books ask you to consider turning your black Friday PLAID!  Come celebrate the start of the holidays with us! We have great book recommendations and fun sidelines. Show your family and friends what they mean to you this season with a unique and thoughtful gift from Third Place Books. We love selling books, and your support keeps us going. So spread your cheer to indies this year. Happy Holidays, we look forward to sharing them with you!
