So sad

Yesterday, two much-loved Vineyard establishments caught fire. During a day of celebration, this was such a shock. The newly renovated Cafe Moxie has been lost, and I hadn’t even gotten in there yet. So sad for the owners – people put their hearts and souls into their businesses around here – and for the town.

The Bunch of Grapes Bookstore has lost much of its merchandise to smoke and water damage. This is the bookstore where I used to buy Baby Sitters’ Club books in junior high, sci-fi in high school, then SAT prep, college catalogs, dog training books, art books, home building guides – you could write my biography in receipts from this store. Hopefully they’ll be back in action soon; in the meantime, they’ll be sorely missed.

This is heartbreaking.

And this.
