Simply stated…they stick! No glue, no paste, no mess. Just press them down with light fingertip pressure on virtually any smooth surface and they will stick. They are also easy to peel up and reposition so “mistakes” virtually disappear. Plus, they stick to each other for 3-D creativity and fun. Twist, bend, stick, and create. That’s it! No preparation… no clean-up… no mess. Sold at Little Richard’s Toys and Games, shop online or in store!⁠

You can almost feel the glow of the moonlight in Mary Azarian's wonderful winter night woodcut, recreated into greeting cards from Artists to Watch. Each set of 12 greeted holiday cards comes with 12 white envelopes; cards are printed on uncoated, recycled paper with soy based inks. They are packed in a recycled, Kraft colored box, with a die-cut window displaying the front of the card.

About Us

patriciarichardpatio
Your hosts Richard Skorman and Patricia Seator welcome you to Poor Richard’s, where Downtown Colorado Springs residents, employees and visitors have been making themselves at home for more than 40 years. From simple beginnings as a restaurant and bookstore, Poor Richard’s has evolved to become a downtown Colorado Springs landmark—a warm and friendly family of businesses under one roof that’s the only one of its kind in the country.

In the News

A PLACE WHERE YOU FEEL AT HOME

Richard Skorman was just 22 years old when he opened his first business, a used paperback store on North Tejon Street. Skorman was a senior at Colorado College when he had the opportunity to buy the stock from a book store that was closing.

Two years later, he expanded the business with an inheritance, loans and some restaurant equipment donated by his father. The idea of a bookstore where you could also get a bite to eat was a novel idea at the time. Skorman wanted people to feel welcome at Poor Richard’s Feed & Read. He wanted his customers to enjoy a comfortable place where could hang out and not feel rushed.

Poor Richard’s has evolved since then, but the environment of a place where you feel at home has never changed.
