The Lost Art Press storefront at 837 Willard St. in Covington, Ky., will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday. We’ll have all of our books on hand, plus stickers, posters and shirts that are exclusive to the storefront.
My daughter Katy will be there with some of her soft wax that she held off from selling on etsy this week.
Also fun: John will be there as will Raney Nelson from Daed Toolworks.
What will be we be doing? Good question. I just finished up a big project and don’t have anything on my bench at the moment. This week has been all about sprucing up the facade at the building. We’ve been replacing glass and trim to bring in more light and prepare for our new custom door, which is on order.
I was going to build the door myself, but decided that you guys would rather have “Woodworking in Estonia” in your hands.
If you’re coming down to the store, there are a couple new places to eat you should check out (plus some I haven’t mentioned before). All are easily walkable from our store.
Son & Soil. Best Cubano sandwich I have ever had. Great coffee. Great everything.
Lil’s Bagels. These are available before noon at Point Perk on Pike Street before noon only. I love to see neighborhood gangbangers walking around with bags of these bagels on Saturday. Good food isn’t just for the mustache-wax set.
Old Kentucky Bourbon Bar. The biggest selection of bourbon I’ve seen. If you have any bourbon fantasies (Elmer T. Lee, Pappy etc.) this where to get them fulfilled. Great prices and a fantastic patio.
Otto’s. Best brunch in Covington. And Saturday is the best day to go because it’s not as crowded.
