BIZNOTE: Happy 1st anniversary, Paper Boat Booksellers!

Shop your local independent small businesses! Another one in West Seattle is celebrating an anniversary – its first:

Today, Paper Boat Booksellers in Morgan Junction marks “1 year of being your neighborhood place for new books, author events, book clubs, and reading time! Time has FLOWN by and what a year it has been – we’ve learned a lot and have met so many wonderful people in our community. Our patience has been tested more than we might have imagined, but we’ve made it out on top and into year 2 we go.”

No party this year because of the pandemic, but Paper Boat is offering an anniversary present to customers – 10 percent off book purchases on Saturday (September 12th), plus a free PBB pin. The shop is at 6040 California SW, open 11 am-5 pm Tuesdays-Sundays, but look for expanded hours starting later this month.

    I am a big fan of this bookstore.  It’s small, but they will order any book they don’t have in stock, and the customer service is outstanding.  Treat yourself to a book, and support your local merchant at the same time!

    Congratulations!  Not the year you (Or any of us) planned on but what a great addition to our neighborhood!  Love PBB!

    I’m always happy to see an independent bookseller. Why I may even trek from the Alaska Jct to you Jct to check you out!

    Congrats D and E! Paper Boat is the loveliest bookstore in Seattle (IMO), and I’m so happy to hear you’ve made it through the dreaded first year in one piece. Here’s to many (many!) more to come!

    happy birthday, paper boat! so happy you are still here and creatively navigating how to move forward. you’ll always have my business!

    Agree! I love this bookstore! The vibe is warm & friendly & exudes the ideal independent, local bookstore environment that invites me to read. A reconnection to an experience I loved pre-Covid: exploring, learning, opening my mind & curiosity to a bigger world.  Staff is very helpful. Support your local bookstore!

    Hooray! I’ve been rooting for PBB. Will definitely stop by again on Saturday.

    Paper Boat is the best new addition to West Seattle in years, IMHO! What a year to try open a new business! I’m so grateful you made it!

    1st visit today! Able to get & then order some not- in stock books. Very nice people! I would much rather visit an independent bookseller than a box store. Congratulations on one year open. I will be back. Oh, my budget….

Sorry, comment time is over.
