I received this exciting message today, so you better get your sleepy asses over to Brooklyn:
Hey Friends and Family,
We are writing to let you know that Berl's Brooklyn Poetry Shop is open for business!
We will be selling poetry at the Brooklyn Flea this Saturday and Sunday, March 12th and 13th. Please come out and say hello! We'll be offering a wide selection of handmade poetry books, which you can buy and read with a knitted pair of poetry reading mitts, also handmade and for sale.
