Childrens Books At The Warehouse

Our world is full of noise and chaos for young minds; television, video games, music devices,and cell phones shout at them daily.

Even babies love the sound of cartoons, are fascinated by the buttons of remote controls and have their favorite tunes when the radio is on.

Searching for a way to stop the madness? Looking for a little quiet time to spend with your kids?

Check out the shelves of gently read children's books At The Warehouse. Reading provides a quiet time for closeness and personal interaction. Children love to be read to. It lets their imaginations take flight.

Even before they can understand the words, they love the sound of Daddy's deep voice lulling them to sleep and Mommy's silly character voices making them giggle.
At The Warehouse has a wide selection of books for children ages infant to young adult.
Recent finds:

Amelia Bedelia....Peggy Parrish's silly tales of a housekeeper whose literal take on language makes for amusing situations.
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish......Dr Susses classic ridiculous rhyming book will have your little ones laughing out loud.
Baby Sitter Club series Ann M. Martin about a group of seventh grader students who form a business and find out how hilarious babysitting can be.

Albany Flea - this Sunday 7/26/2009

Visit Albany Flea - The Sunday place to be!

Fred Shapiro and Camille Gibeau of Silver Fox Enterprises have added a new element to their North Albany At The Warehouse location. Together they launched Albany Flea in June of this year.
Albany Flea is not your average Flea Market. Inspired by large venues such as London's Apple market and Brooklyn Flea, here you will find a multitude of vendors selling antiques, collectibles, and locally made, handcrafted goods in a casual pet friendly environment
Stroll through the Yard Garden to enjoy flowering plants and hanging baskets.
Try on vintage clothing and accessories in the outdoor shop complete with mirrors and changing room.
Browse the vendors booths set up among iron gates and concrete garden statuary to search for treasures.
Last weekends offerings included vintage cocktail shakers and swizzle sticks, antique furniture, and Kariza dresses - advertised to be able to be worn 100 different ways.
When you visit Albany Flea on Sunday don't forget to come inside At The Warehouse. Our artisan vendors shops Dreaming Lion Tarot, Carol Dratch Kovler, One of a Kind Art, and The FamiLee Jewels are still here, as well as Silver Fox Architectural Salvage.
Plan to relax and to have lunch while you look around. The Artifacts Cafe has a great selection of fresh breads, soups, sandwiches, pizza and quiche, while our outdoor snack shack has snow cones, ice cream, cotton candy and funnel cake for desert.
Wireless Internet and ATM on site.
