I recently attended the most romantic wedding ever. My brother’s girlfriend’s brother (follow?) is in med school, and a few years ago went to volunteer for the summer at a Brazilian orphanage. He fell in love with a young woman who’d grown up there, despite cultural and language barriers. It was a beautiful wedding and reception.
Next door to the ballroom that held the reception was a little downtown used and vintage bookstore that was a hidden gem. I’ve been to Topeka so many times and still never known about this little store Lloyd Zimmer’s Books and Maps. The store specializes in the history of Topeka and Kansas, and Psychology and Psychoanalysis.
In addition to a wonderful collection of books, they also had darling little pamphlet and chap books that I’d would love to collect. They had lovely historical and vintage maps that I’d love to have hanging on my wall, if only I could choose.
