Hillary Clinton was spotted just doing her thing at a small-town bookstore in Rhode Island Sunday – almost two weeks after losing the presidential election to Donald Trump.
Jessica Wick, a bookseller at a Westerly, RI, bookstore, snagged a photo with the Democratic candidate who was stopping through town with her family.
Clinton had been at the Savoy Bookshop and Cafe with her husband former President Bill Clinton, her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, her son-in-law and grandchildren, the Associated Press reports.
Wick explained in a Facebook post (which went up Monday because she said wanted to give the famous family some privacy) that she told Clinton that she had voted for her.
“She was gracious and she was warm and she said the bookstore was beautiful,” Wick wrote in the post, adding that Bill Clinton shook her hand and even complimented her on her sweater.
“This was a surprise and I can’t imagine meeting anyone else who looms as large,” she said of meeting Hillary.
Wick told The Day newspaper that they had no idea the Clintons were coming. There was no word on which books the family bought either.
Clinton was wrapped up in a winter coat and scarf during the encounter and noticeably clear-faced after a long campaign where she was seen only with her hair styled and a full face of makeup.
The candid photo-op is reminiscent of Clinton’s walk through the woods in the days after the election. Presidential candidates: they just need to get some fresh air and find a good book to curl up with.
