Wednesday, April 1st: No Jokes

My Grandfather's Royal manual typewriter!

Today is Wednesday, April 1st

Rag & Bone Bindery is open for business

(read our post from Wednesday, March 25th for more information about how we're able to remain open for business)


It's Wednesday, April 1st and social distancing is no joke. It's a strange new world out there with new rules and guidelines to keep us all safe. We're doing our part in the Bindery as best we can. Our website is open and we're making books, but our front doors are locked. We ship and receive packages, but that's it. A few weeks ago we purchased enough materials to last months to minimize contact with deliveries. Fortunately, Ilira and I get along very well, we've been working together for almost 25 years! It's comforting to trust in each other not only to do the work that needs to be done, but to look out for each other. It's going to take a village as they say, and our village is very small these days. To be honest, work is keeping us sane and we look forward to getting to the Bindery every day to make books for you!

Thank you for continuing to order during this time. We know moms are still having babies and need baby books, and journalers and artists are writing and creating in their new journals. And lots of binders are going out the door as we have extra time to put together those photo binders. It makes us happy to know we can help in our small way. We're not front line responders, who deserve all of our appreciation, but we're doing what we can to help spark creativity during this unusual time.

Please remain safe and take care of friends and family while we stay close to home doing our best to #flattenthecurve.

We'll update the blog again tomorrow.

Let us know if you have any questions. Use the contact form on our Contact page to send us a message, or call us direct at 401 728 0762. We're usually in the Bindery by 9:00 and leave around 4:00 (EST). Cheers! - Jason
