Some people called me crazy when just over a year ago I quit my job and bought a used bookstore. I saw the store for sale on a Friday night, bought it Sunday morning. I spent the rest of the day shopping for things like a cash register, vacuum, pens, toilet paper and a coffee pot. By 10:00 p.m. Sunday night I was back at the grocery store when I realized the cash register I bought was not pre-filled!
Monday morning I called my boss, quit my job (he was very understanding) and opened up my own business. I made $6.50 that first day! Thankfully business is better now.
What’s not to love about being surrounded by old books, coffee and amazing customers. The store is way larger in the inside than it looks on the outside. [VIRTUAL TOUR]
We will be sharing many photos here on our blog of interesting books we find in the store along with the books that arrive in the store daily, random facts and fun moments.
