Blue House Books is a small company with big plans. We are currently operating as a pop-up bookstore in Kenosha's downtown community. We attend community events and set up shop in local businesses and nonprofit organizations.
We sell any and all books: fiction and nonfiction, from romance to politics. You suggest it, and we will stock it. We fully believe in your right to read, and we are here to support you in whatever you want to explore. If you're at a loss for what to read next, let us make a suggestion!
Blue House Books is currently working toward opening a full bookstore in downtown Kenosha with a beer, wine, and coffee bar and event space. Keep up with our blog page to check on how we're doing!
WHAT'S IN A NAME?
Why Blue House Books? It all started with this thought: how do I want people to feel when they visit my store?
Warm. Connected. Welcome. Brave. Exploratory. Friendly. Curious. Loved.
My next thought: Where am I when I feel all these wonderful emotions? The answer was simple. My childhood home. The Blue House.
My parents created a home where everyone felt welcome and everyone wanted to hang out. Friends became family and family became closer. Our house was one of love and comfort, and that is exactly how I want people to feel when they visit Blue House Books.
JUST SO YOU KNOW...
Please keep in mind that Blue House Books is completely run by Samantha Jacquest, owner, bookseller, business operator, financial planner, social media manager, and everything else that is required to run a business. On top of all this, Sam works a full time job!
