We were so very fortunate not to have suffered significant physical damage from Hurricane Florence, but due to the immense amount of damage to homes on Topsail Island, the loss of income has devastated our business. We still have debt from inventory purchases, plus monthly mortgage payments, utilities and taxes. I have drained my personal resources, applied for various Small Business Loans with no success, and have reached a point in which I must make a choice to close the store and liquidate or reach out and ask for help.

For more than 24 years, Quarter Moon Books and Gifts has been a pillar in the community of Topsail Beach. Not just a small business, the Quarter Moon is a gathering place. Many of our customers are vacationers, and the Quarter Moon is a place they return year after year. Founded in 1995, Quarter Moon Books and Gifts began as a small bookstore. Within two years, we added a coffee bar. In 1999, we bought a building in a better location and expanded our inventory. With the introduction of Amazon and e-readers, we observed a noticeable drop in book sales, and responded by diversifying our offerings to include women’s clothing, gifts, stationery, and a wine bar. We also host a number of events throughout the year, including wine tastings, book signings, and performances by local musicians. I love this community and I love this store. It has been a dream for me. Thank you for your consideration. I cannot express how much I appreciate any amount you would be willing to share with Quarter Moon.
