Stacks and stones: Bookie’s to reopen with Rockshop records and rocks

Bookie's is back, the Rock Shop is ready, and the new combination book/rocks/record store, informally dubbed "stacks and stones" by the partners in the venture, is set to open Tuesday, Nov. 22, at 18019 Dixie Highway in Homewood.

The Rock Shop, co-owned by Laura Bruni and Craig Frank, held a soft opening Friday, Nov. 18, to introduce the new space, which includes Bookie's familiar dark colored shelves along the walls, a center display of vinyl records in the center of the store, and displays of rocks, crystals and jewelry.
