The Lost Art Press storefront will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday, Sept. 10, less than a week before Woodworking in America.
We’ll have all our books for sale, plus some new T-shirts for Lost Art Press and Crucible Tool for $20 each.
In addition to commerce, we’ll have both Roman workbenches out in the shop and available for you to play with. And we’ll have a Crucible holdfast on the bench for you to hit as much as you please (sorry, we won’t start selling these until Sept. 15 – we still don’t have the retail pricing calculated).
I’ll also be finishing the construction of a mobile book cart we’re taking to the Marketplace at WIA. It will feature some of my finest craftsmanship (actually, plywood and pocket screws).
So do stop by if you can. The storefront is located at 837 Willard St., Covington, Ky., 41011.

P.S. If you come to town that day, check out the newly opened Covington Coffee three blocks away. They have outstanding pour-over coffee, they sell Lil’s Bagels and they make waffles on Saturday. Also worth drinking: Stop by Braxton Brewing and order a pint of Haven – the best weissbier I’ve had outside Bavaria. Finally, if you want to please your spouse, get brunch at Otto’s that morning. The Benedict Otto’s is fantastic.

As someone who does enjoy pleasing his spouse in the morning, I will have to see what this Otto fella has to offer.
FABULOUS to see your beautiful gold leaf sign got OK’d and painted. PERFECT!
The real question is, what will your hours be during WIA? I so want to visit the shop.
I’m afraid we don’t have the staff to open the shop during WIA. I’ll be teaching; John will be running the booth at the Marketplace. And then we’re out of staff. Sorry.
Do you have any posters that will be available as well? I keep forgetting to order in time when they are available.
We have about a dozen of the letterpress tool chest posters for sale at the shop.
Hello, will the sale prices be available online for those that can’t be there?
I think there might be a little confusion because of my language. We aren’t discounting the price at the launch (or ever). Like Lost Art Press, Crucible will treat all customers the same. Same price for everyone at all times.
Is the event a cash only event?
This Saturday? No. We take credit cards, checks and cash.
