Is your ideal pet independent, incredibly soft and warm in your lap, and excellent at yoga? Or is your ideal pet loyal, playful, trainable, and able to fill you with gut-wrenching guilt anytime you selfishly treat yourself to a piece of jerky? Whether you’re a cat person or a dog person, we have a bookContinue reading “May is Pet Month”
How Novel likes to offer art workshops. So far we’ve done Drawing Still-lifes and Zentanges, and we have a Watercolor Basics scheduled for May 28th. Two of these events have been taught by me (Nikki) and while I really enjoy teaching… and art… I know there are people out there who have skills and stylesContinue reading “Wanted: Art Instructors”

I’ve had a couple Butte authors come into the store recently, and it made me realize… I often written about local artists who bring their work in, but I haven’t given a shout out to the authors who introduce their work to the store. How negligent of me! So, here are some books I haveContinue reading “Thank You Local Authors”
On March 24th, Butte is lifting its mask mandate. Because of this, I feel the need to make an announcement. I feel a little awkward because it is not my personality to get squealy-excited about announcing personal news. In fact, I normally just keep my parents updated on stuff and figure they’ll spread the wordContinue reading “Store Mask Policy”
