Arkadia Christmas and New Year Wishes! (We are closed until 7.1.2021)

Dear friends of Arkadia,

As the year ends we take much pleasure in sending out to you, and your loved ones, our heartiest good wishes for Christmas and the New Year!

It has been a year of many dramatic events, but also some moments of peace, serenity and reflection.

We hope you are all reasonably well! Our thoughts go to our musician friends and other performers who have had an extremely difficult year. Not being able to perform has not only affected their livelihood but also the essence of their vocation. Since spring, we have been unable to organise our habitual events, which we are very sorry about. Art is essential to all of us and we hope that it is never forgotten.

We are deeply thankful to all our customers, visitors and supporters who make the existence of our bookshop possible, and running it a most gratifying task.

We are also extremely thankful to all the fabulous workers, trainees and volunteers, who joined us in work this year. Emilia and Erkki were especially wonderful and essential!

It has been a great pleasure to share our space, books and thoughts with all of you!

Work and activities will naturally continue next year as steadfastly as ever. But first, we shall take a little break!

Arkadia will open again on Thursday January 7th at 10:00 am.

You are all heartily welcome to join us then once more!

Look after yourselves well in the meantime.

Most warmly,

Ian and Liisa
