Mrs. Dalloway’s Literary and Garden Arts

July 20, 2012 by Bay Nature

Mrs. Dalloway's Literary and Garden Arts is new to the Elmwood shopping district on College Avenue in Berkeley. Remodeled with eco-friendly and sustainable materials the store is a delightfully airy setting for all kinds of books, plants, and art. The literary side of the house offers a high quality mix of fiction and non-fiction; the garden side has a comprehensive selection of books on gardening (with a special emphasis on the Bay Area climate), architecture, and natural science. A cozy corner in the back is set aside for great children's books, both new and classic.
