Jeff Kinney, author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, commissioned Steve Staples and his artisans at Creative Art Furniture to custom build many of the merchandising furniture and cafe tables for his new bookstore and cafe called "An Unlikely Story" located at the former Falk's Market site on the corner of Rt. 1A and Rt. 106 in downtown Plainville, MA.  The bookstore is unique, very beautiful and much of the building materials are reclaimed, just like the furniture made by Staples.  It is a MUST SEE kind of place where you can meet a friend, enjoy breakfast or lunch and bring the kids!
