Foggy Pine Book Store

Any one who loves books and lives in or has been to Boone, NC has surely made a visit to Foggy Pine Books. The owner, Mary Ruthless, has poured their heart and soul into this establishment portraying their passion for books and love for all people no matter their age, race, gender or whatever it may be; all are welcome there. But maybe not for long. 

This pandemic has hit small businesses hard and despite Mary's efforts there has been minimal government aid. It's up to individuals and communities of all sizes to work together to help those in need. And Foggy Pine is in need. Every community should have an inviting bookstore and Boone has one of the best and most welcoming indie bookstores on the entire east coast. It would be heartbreaking to let this award wining store slip away.

Your donations will allow this amazing owner to hold on to a lifelong dream.  A dream to provide love and education to anyone who wants it. This store is a benefit for children and families as well as students of all ages in our community. I love this store. I've known the owner for many years and I know how much more is in store for this place given the chance. Please. Help keep Foggy Pine Books in the town of Boone.
