Bonnie Slotnick Cookbooks makes the move to East 2nd Street

On Monday morning, workers packed up the contents of the Bonnie Slotnick Cookbooks shop for the move from West 10th Street to her new home at 28 E. Second St. between Second Avenue and the Bowery.

In an email to friends/supporters of her longtime book shop, Slotnick provided move highlights and shared some photos...

The movers were incredible, as were my friends who helped.

Stay tuned for the reopening — I have a long way to go, as you'll see ...

And as always, thank you for your support and love!

Back in November, Jeremiah Moss first reported that the popular specialty store was not having the lease renewed for its 15-year-old Greenwich Village shop.

Soon after this news broke, DNAinfo got word that a pair of siblings reached out to Slotnick about a retail space available in their childhood home on East Second Street.

A few weeks back, Slotnick confirmed to Jeremiah that she struck a deal with the family for the ground-floor commercial space.

Per Jeremiah: "[T]he story of how she got it might renew your faith in New York City and the life of its book culture." Read his post here.

I've been pining for Vegan Pie in the Sky so I'll go there this weekend to get it. Vegan pie for everyone!

Jill: Me too!

(She has that title?)

I hope she has it! How could she have a cookbook store without the illustrious Isa Chandra and Terry Hope? (Isa is cooking at City Winery this weekend and I have tickets!)

Great news. Thats a perfect location.

I just called and she's not open yet until maybe Feb 10th. Just looked at the website and seems to be only out of print and antiquarian books so getting the book I want from this store may be pie in the sky.
