Pipe & Thimble Book Store is founded on the principles of Richard and Peg Austin’s doll house miniature business in the late 70’s by the same name. We strive to treat all authors, artisans, and other indies with respect, fairness, and integrity. We created a haven that returns to the original roots of storytelling with a focus of community, bringing forth those voices that are so essential, and yet so often unheard.
Along with providing a platform for and promoting indie authors, local handmade artisans, musicians, and others within the indie circle, we also offer a place to further their own reach within the South Bay, as well as working with local schools, charities, libraries, and other local business on joint events that support reading, learning, and community.
As independent authors and artisans ourselves, we know the struggles that accompany getting product in stores and in a way that benefits the author/maker. We also know the difficulty of finding locations that work with those in the indie circle for events.
S. A. Gibson is proud to have his work featured by Pipe & Thimble. I’ve enjoyed appearing on author panels there. Please visit the store and spread the word.
