TINY bookshop

Avenir Light is a clean and stylish font favored by designers. It's easy on the eyes and a great go-to font for titles, paragraphs & more.


The Tiny Bookshop Concerts are a series of live performances showcasing local talent in an intimately empowering environment. While music is centered, the project is multidisciplinary in nature and aims to support a myriad of local artists, storytellers, performers and professionals of color.

The primary goal of each show is to capture engaging video/audio content that can reach a wide digital audience (from the live recording at the show, we aim to create a youtube video, professional photos, and a mini podcast episode - all of which will be shared with each artist).

The ticketed show aspect was added to include our local community in on the experience! The shows are nice and intimate, with a maximum of 20 tickets available. Each ticket comes with a seat, tea & refreshments, there is also an option to add a book of choice to the ticket at a discounted price.
