The Lit. Bar at the Bronx Museum Holiday Market

  • Bronx Museum of the Arts

BX Bookworms, 

We can't wait to finally meet you in person at our very first pop-up shop!

THE LIT. BAR will be a vendor at The Bronx Museum Holiday Market on December 10th & 11th (from 11am- 6pm, each day). Our table will be full of indie & mainstream titles; and fun reader, wine, and Bronx-related gift items, including: 

~Adult coloring book created & illustrated by Bronx native and custom cake designer, Melody Velez. 

~We can't sell wine yet; but we'll get close... with umbrellas that come in decorative cases that look like wine bottles.

~"Blind Date with a Book". Pick up a mystery book, gift-wrapped, and tagged with clues, so it can't be judged by its cover.

Learn more about our initiative to bring a bookstore to the Bronx, knock out your holiday shopping, and come support local businesses in the borough! To see a full list of vendors you can visit the Museum website.
