Here at Novel-Teas in beautiful downtown Niagara Falls, Ontario, we are gearing up for our second annual Authors for Indies Day. It promises to be even bigger and better than last year and we can't wait.
As anyone who has visited our store will attest, Novel-Teas is not your average book store. In our space you will find an atmosphere of inviting calm - a space that makes you want to stay all day and envelop yourself in the wellness within our walls. Our product mix in addition to new and used books, includes loose leaf teas, essential oils, healing crystals, salt lamps, hand made natural soaps, lotions and candles. We hope that when people leave here they will take with them some of the wonderful inner peace they have found when they visited.
A large part of the uniqueness of our store is the art that adorns our walls, the music we play on the stereo and the "come sit at my kitchen table" atmosphere. We currently feature the work of five local artists and one photographer. We play the music of some of Niagara's greatest musicians and we support a local film company who offers Moonlight Movies in the Park just one block from here. In the middle of our store we have a bar height kitchen table where people gather for Lunch and Learns, colouring parties or to just sip some great tea and enjoy conversation with friends. With all this diversity it goes without saying then, that our Authors For Indies Day Celebration will not be like any other in the country.
It will be a mini festival of the arts which showcases the work of many of our local people. We will be presenting a great line up of writers, some of who were with us last year and some new faces to light up the stage. Two of these include a husband and wife team, members of our own Writer's Circle, who will present their debut novel. We will have a mini art gallery; musicians have been invited to play in between author presentations and a film loop will run showcasing the talent of one of our local independent film makers. There will be an opportunity for guests to take part in that mind blowing new craze that has everyone "abuzz" - adult colouring! Visitors will also be able to try their hand at origami, perhaps challenge an opponent to a game of chess and of course browse the shelves while sipping a cup of amazing custom blended tea.
We will be serving refreshments all day long but for lunch or supper guests may wish to visit one of our local area restaurants who are offering discounted meals to patrons of our Authors For Indies Day event. A great opportunity to try original food creations by some local chefs - another, often overlooked artistic talent.
We hope that guests who attend this year's Authors For Indies day will enjoy discovering the amazing talent that lives and works right here in this city and that they will be encouraged to explore and discover their own talents. Of course we hope too that they find in our store, an environment they will want to come back to again and again.
Located in the heart of the beautifully, revitalized Q District of Downtown Niagara Falls, R&B Novel-Teas is a truly unique experience you won’t want to miss.
Come in and browse our shelves while sipping a cup of tea. Sit at one of our café tables and enjoy a luxury tea while you read your favourite book or browse in the peaceful Library atmosphere of “The Novel Place”, a room filled with books just waiting to be read. Our Loose Leaf Teas are some of the finest available in the country.
In addition to books – both new and used we also carry a line of wellness and healing products. Healing stones, Himalayan salt products, candles, New Age books as well as Tarot and oracle cards.
