She’s has owned the prêt-à-porter (or ready-to-wear) store for 15 years now. About 18 months ago, the store started carrying children’s wear — sizes newborn to age 12 for girls and newborn to age 6 for boys.
Sheila is wife to Fred Vakili and a mom to 4-year-old son Cameron (who is photographed above).
The couple will take turns reading at the 7 p.m. story time tonight at the Bookworm Bookstore, near 87th and Pacific Streets. The story time lasts for about 30 minutes.
The bookstore holds a very special place in the couple’s hearts.
While Sheila was expecting Cameron, many of her customers — who also frequent the Bookworm — thought it would be nice to establish a home library for him.
“So they went to the Bookworm and started his library,” Mom said. “He reads at an 8-year-old level and he’s only 4.”
For tonight’s story time, children are encouraged to wear their pajamas and bring a teddy bear (or other small stuffed animal). The reading will include a toast to the new year with milk and cookies. Children also can share their New Year’s resolutions.
We hope to see you there.
