Twice Sold Tales to open in Ballard

by John MacBeath Watkins

Twice Sold Tales will open a Ballard branch in conjunction with Bauhaus Coffee some time in December or January.

Bauhaus has leased the former Epilogue Books space at 20th and Market for a new location, and will sublease the part of the location  with an entrance on 20th to Twice Sold Tales. The bookstore will be accessible through the coffee shop as well.

I will be moving the Vashon Island store to this new location, and this will enable me to have an open shop again. Since leaving the University district about a year and a half ago, I've been selling on-line only.

This will again enable me to display our pteranodon sculpture. It is quite likely that Meerkat, the very small catboat I've been building, will be on display there as well, making Twice Sold Tales the only business in Ballard decorated with a boat that actually gets used. I don't think it will be practical to have cats, though, because we'll have walk-through to a business that serves food.


  1. This is welcome news, John. Glad to see the Seattle's literary hemorrhage is finally being stemmed. I'm looking forward to seeing the shop, though I'll miss the cats.
