Lots of Events and Making New Friends

This is always a very busy time of year and I wanted to take just a moment to introduce to you a few new friends I have made this spring. For sometime we have wanted to put the CINCINNATI AND SOUP books in "eastern Cincinnati"... well it finally happened and we are now on the famous Mariemont Square at THE VILLAGER . Kate is the owner and in addition to having  a USPS in her store she has all the Cincinnati and Soup line ,books and prints and "fun" stuff like jewelry, Vera Bradley, baby items, toys, candles and terrific creative greeting cards. She has free parking in the back and is right across the street from the Mariemont Inn with their fine dining restaurant.
We are having our  first Mother's Day booksigning and Ruth Lyons candy tasting and raffle- this Sat. May 5 from 1-4 p.m. This is a great time to get those personalized copies of CINCINNATI AND SOUP for friends and relatives.
We also are pleased to announce that we are now in Fairfield ! JUNGLE JIM'S INTERNATIONAL MARKET and the largest market in the State ( I think) will also be carrying both CINCINNATI AND SOUP books.
All you foodie "tourists" can check out all the really exotic items and pick up autographed books on Sunday May 6 from 2-5 p.m. in JASMIN'S GIFT SHOP in the front of the store. This is  excellant boutique with many choices for Mother's Day gifts. Vera Bradley, Leslie Paint Glass, Brighton Jewelry and a lot of really wonderful things to make this a very special Mother's Day. The books will also be carried in the GOURMET GALLERIA area where the cookbooks and cookware are located as well.
It is always a pleasure to make new friends and be in new areas of the Tri-State where some people are just hearing about CINCINNATI AND SOUP for the very first time !
