Where's Waldo? He's at Cafe 1905 in Dunhams at 45 Main Street.
Where's Waldo? In Wellsboro Pennsylvania. For the fifth year running, Indie Bookstores Launch a Massive Cross Country Campaign to Promote the Shop Local Message in July.
This July, From My Shelf Books & Gifts is joining a nationwide celebration of the Shop Local movement and the iconic children’s book character, Where’s Waldo, who recently celebrated his birthday.
Brought back by popular demand for the fifth year in a row, indie bookstores across the country will be hosting Find Waldo scavenger hunts while spreading the "Buy Local" message in their cities and towns.
It’s a month-long scavenger hunt for Waldo hosted by 250 indie bookstores across the nation in July 2016. Participating bookstores champion the Shop Local message by enlivening downtown areas with a community-wide scavenger hunt activity to which everyone — kids, parents, and Waldo-lovers of all ages — is invited to participate.
On July 1, 2017, Waldo-spotters will set off on a hunt to find the elusive character hidden around dozens of downtown businesses in Wellsboro. Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a Find Waldo passport at a participating business and collect a store stamp or signature for each Waldo they spot. Hundreds of Waldo spotters will be eligible for prizes.
One of the participating businesses hosting Waldo this year is Cafe 1905 in Dunhams' Department store at 45 Main Street. Cafe 1905 serves Starbucks coffee and has free Wifi. I love getting my espresso there, and sometimes I'll grab a sandwich for lunch. Kasey loves their banana bread and the iced green tea. Look for Waldo and get yourself something nice.
Oh, and it's Sunday today, and that means double punches at Cafe 1905!
