I hope everyone had a splendid Halloween. I just wanted to report on two costumes I saw at the coffee shop across the street from the Flying Pig on Saturday.
I can safely say that I feel like I’ve now made it to the pinnacle of bookselling; someone made a costume from my store name! And aren’t they adorable? Stephanie, the Flying Pig on the left, said she’s been trying to be a flying pig since we moved to Shelburne three years ago. She kept waiting for someone else on staff to join her, and this year she finally got a co-flying pig, Emily, sort of like me and Elizabeth.
Here they are from the back. They insisted on this photo. They’re very proud of their tails. And really, why shouldn’t they be?
As if two grown-ups dressing up like flying pigs weren’t enough, Allie, one of our favorite teen customers, above, chose to dress as a flying pig as well. Pretty cool, huh?
