Barnes & Noble Coming to The Veranda in Concord

The Veranda, Concord

Thanks to a reader for pointing out that according to the latest directory map Barnes & Noble is coming to the Veranda shopping center next to Banana Republic in Concord. You may remember that Barnes & Noble closed over two years ago in downtown Walnut Creek and almost five years ago in Pleasant Hill. I wonder whether they’ll change anything up to compete with Amazon as they plot their return or will they continue to push the NOOK and hope for their loyal shoppers to return.


The Abrothacary Herbal Bone Broth at Moraga Farmers Market

The Abrothacary, an Oakland-based, woman-run company that features herbal bone broth and cleanses recently started offering their goods at the Moraga farmers market. I’ve passed by this booth several times and have been intrigued by what’s being offered, has anyone tried this stuff? Do you make soup with it or mix it in other ways? I make broth from the leftover turkey carcass on Thanksgiving and agree with Ina Garten that it’s like liquid gold, it makes soups so much tastier!

From their website:

The abrothacary is a woman run business committed to bringing forth nutrient dense deliciousness. We specialize in Deeply Nourishing Herbal Broth.

We also offer 5-day nourishing Broth & Soup cleanses. We believe in the importance of a healthy digestive system. Check out the link below to find out more!

Last month we learned that Joe & the Juice will be coming to downtown Walnut Creek and according to an email from the owner, D. Delucchi Fine Jewelry will close at the end of October and relocate a few blocks away to 1372 N. Main St, Suite 106 in the same building where CREAM is, in back. As you can see in the above photo, the sunglasses store next door will also be closing to make room for a new building so Joe & the Juice will be able to offer their juice in a sleek new storefront!


Color Me Mine Closing this December at La Fiesta Square in Lafayette

La Fiesta Square, Lafayette

The painting studio Color Me Mine will be closing this December at La Fiesta Square in Lafayette. Note that their Walnut Creek location will remain open.

From an email:

Our business is very much involved in planning and takes time for people to get their things back. Also, everything painted in the Lafayette location that is not picked up will not be transferred anywhere, they will be donated or disposed of. The second week of December will be the last week we will accept painters and then the third week will be the last week to pick up items(items left at Lafayette will NOT be available anywhere else), I want to be closed before the holidays. Our Walnut Creek and various other locations will remain open, and also franchising opportunities are currently available!

Walnut Creek location will remain open:

1950 Mt. Diablo Blvd, Walnut Creek
