DELHI, NEW YORK - The Lost Bookshop and Bushel Collective announce a residency by the bookstore at Bushel’s storefront at 106 Main St, Delhi, NY. The residency, which will consist of open bookshop hours and community events, will run from August 27 through mid-December. The Lost Bookshop’s open hours will be Saturdays from 12 - 5, with community events on select Sundays.  While in residence, The Lost Bookshop’s open hours will feature an ever-rotating selection of around 100 titles, including fiction, nonfiction and children’s books. Bushel’s art exhibitions will also be on view. Throughout the residency, Bushel Collective’s ongoing programming, including its own book and art sales, will continue as usual.

The first day of the bookshop’s residency  on August 27 will coincide with the 5pm opening of Bushel’s gallery exhibition “And Now for Something Different”, featuring the work of Bovina-based artist Bernie Seringer Jr.; bookshop patrons are warmly welcomed to stay for the reception.

The Lost Bookshop’s events will kick off with a creative writing class  on October 16 entitled “Writing the Natural World”.  Writers from all levels of experience and all genres are encouraged to join. Suggested donation $20. Find more information and register at

On October 23, The Lost Bookshop will host a discussion of Robin Wall Kimmerer’s “Gathering Moss.” Sign up and buy a discounted copy of the book at the shop or at

“I’m happy and grateful that Bushel Collective has welcomed us, not just into their space, but also into their vibrant, creative community,” says Emily Helck, owner of The Lost Bookshop. After pop-ups at this year’s Fair on the Square, Helck says, “We’ve gotten such a warm reception at our pop-ups, and folks are excited by the prospect of a bookstore on Main Street. I’m thrilled about the residency at Bushel.” 

Bushel collective is equally thrilled: “One of Bushel’s functions as a mixed-use space is to make residencies like this possible,” says Anna Moschovakis, one of Bushel’s members. “We know how eager Delhi is for a full-time bookstore, and we are excited to be part of the Lost Bookshop’s path toward establishing a home on the block.”

About The Lost Bookshop

The Lost Bookshop opened in 2022 on a mobile/pop-up basis, with a goal of establishing a brick and mortar location on Main Street in Delhi. The name plays with the dual associations of the word "lost": it’s a pleasure to be lost in a story, and people in periods of change or transition (who are perhaps feeling lost) can benefit from time spent with books. The Lost Bookshop’s carefully curated selection, which is guided by personal recommendations from the community, will place absorbing books in the hands of all readers, including those at crossroads in their lives.

About Bushel Collective

Founded in 2015, Bushel is a nonprofit, volunteer-run, interdisciplinary collective dedicated to growing community and discourse through programming in the arts, agriculture, ecology, and action. Located on Main Street in Delhi, New York, Bushel is an exploration of the relationships and conversations that can be forged in a low-population area by offering a space for exhibitions, readings, musical performances, film screenings, discussions, meetings, co-working, classes and workshops, swaps and skills shares, and other as-yet unexplored happenings. Inspired by both traditional rural meeting places and non-traditional storefront experiments, Bushel remains unwritten, indeterminate, and open-ended. More information at
