Five and Dime Sale at Spoonbill & Sugartown
First come sushi restaurants, then comes a chain drug store, then a palm reader, and then a neighborhood has reached the peak of gentrification. The sushi and Thai joints arrived on Bedford Ave long ago, but the palm reader spot and Duane Reade are brand spanking new. (As are a new crop of food trucks!)
No matter what else pops up along the strip, Spoonbill & Sugartown will always be one of the best bookstores in the burroghs. Where else can you get a fancy architecture coffee table book, a coloring book of vaginas and a used copy of a novel you’ve been meaning to reread since high school? With a bonus resident kitty cat? And right now, they’re running a Five and Dime Sale, where everything in certian boxes is either $5 or $10. According to the markerboard outside the store, the sale runs until they decide it’s over. So you should’ve been heading there two sentences ago.
