If this website is the closest I ever come to shopping in NY, NY, it has been a pleasure. I have checked the store on-line, and you may have to block me out -- it looks very tempting. It may replace my childhood fantasy of getting locked in our small town library. One little old lady and sevens floors of old books--Heaven. Thanks! - Katherine James
