There are a number of things that make Flyleaf such a unique, comforting bookstore: a wide variety of books, awesome staff recommendations, fantastic authors and reading events, a supportive and knowledgeable community, large windows, cozy sitting space, and, of course, squishables (those plush, marshmallow-shaped stuffed animals – more on those for another day). But hands down, one of the coolest parts of Flyleaf is Sally Stollmack.
For those of you have not yet met Sally, she’s the petite, super cool bookseller who probably knows everyone in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area. (One day during the holiday season, Land and Mike kept a running total to see how many customers she knew – they lost count). Seriously, Sally is like sunshine; she’s always upbeat and has such a great personality. But before she was a bookseller, Sally sold her jewelry at Flyleaf not only in glass displays, but also during her Kitchen Jewelry Trunk Show. Her next show is this Saturday, March 19th from Noon-4:00pm and she’ll have exquisite jewelry in addition to some pretty nifty and chic handbags and clutches. All the jewelry is specialty made by artists from all over the world. Here are a few pictures of jewelry, handbags, and clutches she’ll be selling on Saturday. Hope to see you there!
