The store has been here for fifteen years (and counting), and I love talking books with teens who I remember as babies.
🚲 How do you think Bloc will help your business❓
Books from Big Blue Marble go well with High Point coffee and Wild Hand yarn, so why not give people one more way to order?

I live right next to the store, and I love everything about Northwest Philly: its history, its diversity in every dimension, its commitment to community and justice, its natural gifts and its urban strength.

More equity, more joy, more health, more friendship, more creativity and good conversation and abundance.
