Here are a few chapters of our story…..
We are a husband (Jeff) and wife (Liz) team that lives on the Eastern Shore with their one child, 2 dogs, 3 cat and 3 guinea pigs! We started Caprichos in January 2018 and opened our brick-and-mortar store in downtown Bel Air that August. Thanks to our wonderful community in Harford County we rapidly flourished and expanded from just used books to including new books and more art and local artisans to our inventory. The pandemic of 2020 challenged us to grow and adapt, finding new ways to support our community. For us, this meant closing the door on our brick-and-mortar so we could deliver books to your doorstep. During this time we also realized we wanted to make a move for our family and so we expanded into serving the Eastern Shore from Berlin, Maryland.
Through the spring and into the summer of 2021 as things begin to bloom again we are putting our efforts into the thing that we have seen benefit the community and our customers the most. This means fine-tuning our website, planning community programs and partnerships, and hitting the road with our newest addition- A Book Trolley! We purchased the Trolley from our friends at The Story House and now it’s on its way to get tuned up and ready to hit the road after a quiet 2020. Unfortunately, it needed a little more work than we expected and the Trolley is still in the shop. Once we get it back, we hope to document the progress through all our social media channels so stay tuned! In the meantime you'll find all our book clubs, pop-ups and community events under the events tab!
