Nationally, it’s known as Small Business Saturday. But we’re calling it Family Day to put the emphasis on the fun we’re planning for children and their families at our Corte Madera store on Saturday, November 29.
10:00 am - Kathryn Gibbs Davis will be talking about her book Mr. Ferris & His Wheel. This was a pretty amazing invention when it was first unveiled at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893. And it’s still pretty amazing, when you think about it. There will even be a light-up Lego Ferris Wheel!
