Small businesses and non-profits are especially hard hit during the coronavirus outbreak. We get it! Baltimore Fishbowl is a small business, too. To help small businesses and non-profits, we will provide regular updates to let you know how they are coping. 

The following is an update from Helen Norman at Star Bright Farm, on how the business is adapting and coping. In the traditional sense, the farm is not open as a bricks and mortar business BUT it is very much open online! Helen and team also welcome and encourage visitors to take a walk around the farm and enjoy the fresh air. Star Bright Farm is located at 2950 Garrett Road in White Hall, MD 21161.

How have you altered your business to adapt to the quarantine?
We are offering more online sales with “on-farm pick up” and shipping.

Are you doing something for the community or your employees that you want to share with our readers?
We are allowing people to come take walks on the farm. We have 130 acres that people can take advantage of to enjoy the country air, while also practicing social distancing.

Stan Lee is All About the Experience

0

Seize the day, seize the book… just make sure you pay for it first. Stan Lee, the store cat at Carpe Librum needs the bucks for his kitty treats. He loves his treats, but more than that, Stan is all about the experience. Books and bookstores are a crucial part of the cat and human community.

Humans, those handy two-legged head scratchers, might be able to buy books online, but you can’t pay homage to felines or to Stan Lee by staying home in your PJs. Supporting Carpe Librum is supporting your local cat and human population.

Stan Lee has been with the store since it opened in January of 2020, but he’s an experienced bibliocat and has been selling online since 2016. Sometimes, you just need to expand your fan base and create your own reality by opening a storefront.

Stan’s thought on books, bookstores, and holding court with his adoring fans run deep. We talked with Mr. Stan Lee from his favorite pile of books at Carpe Librum.
