Where's Waldo? He's At From My Shelf Books & Gifts
Where's Waldo? In Wellsboro Pennsylvania. For the sixth 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 sixth 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.
From My Shelf Books & Gifts is the host bookstore for Waldo, and we are entering our eleventh year in business and our fifth year of hosting Waldo. You can check out the bookstore at 7 East Avenue. We have over 60,000 books in stock with millions only a day away. Our staff are dedicated experts and will help you find the right book for you, or for that special someone.
