Welcome to PPB 24: our Online Store


This week, it's official ...


You're busy in that great grab a sweater, gotta go kind of way.

The different angle of the sun inspires late afternoon reads and come dusk we get to cozy up indoors with one of the great new reads I've found for you. If you're lucky, there's a wee reader to snuggle in with you -- and books for the littles are among my most favorite things to select for your family. 

As ever, we prioritize the written word (only the best greeting cards and stationery for this and every season), and gifts (things you NEED when you read, like candles and blankets and mugs and ... chocolate).

You'll find lots of local - and not just my neighbor Nikka's classy handmade candles; we've added very local very lovely items from groups most with very worthwhile causes as their purpose: cloth goods made by Glen Ellyn's Re:New project, and Four Brothers Wheaton chocolates, and DuPage Framing Center's fabulous wall-worthy magnetic boards (to showcase your favorite photos or invites or quotes or clippings or GREETING cards from PPB); plus Bright Endeavors candles out of Chicago.

Come in to our autumn oasis and love on the bookstore so very near to you --
