Dear Valued Customers,
 As we go through this unprecedented time dealing with the Coronavirus I want to inform you that Happenstance will be operating a little differently. Unfortunately, I will not be able to have the store open to the public as directed by the Government of Ontario. However, I am pleased to offer a home delivery service within Lakefield and surrounding areas or to make other arrangements for you to get your books or yarns. 
Small businesses like mine greatly appreciate the community support. Please take care of yourselves and loved ones. We will get through this together.    Susan Twist, Proprietor. Please feel free to contact me.

Telephone 705-652-7535  email  facebook happenstancebooksandyarns

Orders can be placed through my webstore

You'll see what is "in store now" and these books can be delivered quickly. Feel free to place orders for books not in stock but note that deliveries from publishers may be inconsistent during this time period.
