Join the North Asheville hunt to Find Waldo! Candlewick Press is teaming up with 250 independent bookstores all across the country, including Spellbound Children’s Bookshop, for some hide and seek fun as well as to encourage communities to patronize their locally owned independent businesses. There is no charge to participate.
Beginnning July 1, you can pick up a Waldo passport at Spellbound or any participating business. When you spot Waldo, ask a staff member for a stamp on that business’s box on your passport. After you collect 10 or more, bring your passport to Spellbound and you’ll receive a $1 coupon, good on a Where’s Waldo book of your choice.
Waldo’s been hiding in books for 30 years, and now he’s hiding in 15 local businesses on Merrimon Avenue in North Asheville in July. Get ready to go find him at:
Rise ‘n’ Shine Cafe
Children’s Trading Post
Avl Bicycle Company
Frostbite Ice Cream Bar
Blackbird Frame and Art
Passports with 10 or more stamps will be entered for prize drawings at our Find Waldo Local wrap party at 4 pm on Friday, July 28th at Spellbound Children’s Bookshop!
Note: Our friends at Malaprops Bookstore & Cafe are also hosting a Waldo hunt featuring downtown businesses. You’re welcome to get passports to each hunt for even more chances to win prizes.
