this is so full of decency.
This is the kind of thing that really gives us hope. Would love to know how the economics of something like this works out.
This book stand is situated on Rokach street in Neve Tzedek. It stands unattended all year long, a tin can & a slot in the door, serving as a cash register for passersby who pick a book of their choice. The cats sit on the books, in the drawers, on parking cars, only to give you a lazy stare, as you approach the tiny bookstore. On the door, the lady of the house leaves poems and quotations, to the delight of the regulars and tourists.
“Somebody Believes in You”
“Please insert money in the slot at the door. Just slip it inside. Thank you.”
“Here we fix broken angels’ wings”
Plus various small signs thanking donors
