we closed the doors on our Massachusetts Avenue
location. Thank you to the hundred or so people who came
out to help up get packed up in just one day! It was a
bittersweet time. We're planning to reopen as a
web-based store sometime in March, 2010. I never had
time to inventory all of our stock and am doing so as we
welcome to call or email during this transition and I
will happily fill orders for you if I can.
If you would like to have your email added to my list of
people who want to be notified about the web site launch
or with regard to upcoming events in our area, please
send me you email.

Kate's Store Closing Note:
Many of you have been aware that I have had the building which houses the store
on the market for awhile. I have finally sold it. I of course have mixed
feelings about this but know it is the right decision for me. The new owners
have allowed me to stay on for a while but Kate's Mystery Books will be closing
on August 1st.
Between now and then, everything in the store will be sold at 25% off.
On Saturday, August 1st, we will be having a packing party from 11-5 AND
we will also have our Annual Yard Sale (books $1 and under) at the same time.
I hope you can get in the next few weeks to say good-bye although I won't
actually disappear. We will be having author events at different venues and of
course we will have the annual holiday party so there will be opportunities for
the mystery community to get together. You will get notices of them from me.
It is sad though to close the store. I hope you can join us on August 1st to
celebrate the good times we have had and to help pack everything up. I know we
can do it, as we have done it before. (Remember the bus?)
It is been a true joy for me to have had the opportunity to me such interesting
and diverse people and I will definitely miss you.
