From an anonymous customer:
David & Helena,
We are still on your Boulder Book Store mailing lists. We congratulate both of you and your staff for your accomplishments achieving your 50th Anniversary.
Boulder Main St. uncovered itself to us 30 years ago and part of the attraction of finding a home a block and half away. During our lives in Boulder, we weekly stopped in your store for browsing and meeting/chatting with our neighbors/strangers; it has become not only for finding good books but also to find good friends. Having your bookstore close by was a convenience but having you as neighbors made our lives more complete; we are great full for that!
We think of you often!
