Green Bean Books, in Northeast Portland, is a tiny store. So maybe it’s no surprise that they have a penchant for tiny things—and we don’t just mean your kids. Recently, the store hosted Portland artist Maggie Rudy, who not only shared her adorable book, The House That Mouse Built, but also left a miniature diorama in one of the store’s two whimsical shadow boxes that owner Jennifer Green uses to promote particular books or themes.
The store is also hosting a Fairy Day on July 16, complete with Found Object Fairy House Building in the garden behind the store. To top off all of this miniature madness, Green handed us this site (check out the blog, too) on a sticky note during our awestruck visit. Postmaster Lea Redmond recently visited the store with her wares too!
Good luck finding a bookstore that has more fun per square foot, make that square inch, than Green Bean Books.
