Upon entering, it becomes immediately
apparent that we emphasize books for children AND that we
have devised ways to pack a lot of books into a given
amount of space in an organized fashion!
knack is also evident across the room in the cookbook
section, which covers 68 square feet of wall space. It is
divided into 12 subcategories. We arrived at this
particular subdivision of our cookbook section by
listening to customer requests. For instance, the "diet/health"
shelf holds cookbooks for weight loss AND for no-sugar,
no-salt, low-fat cooking.
We opened as a new-book store in 1975 and added
secondhand books in 1980. The ratio of new to used books
gradually changed so that our present inventory is
predominately secondhand. We have always had a liberal
sprinkling of sale books (we call them "new books at
used-book prices") throughout the shop in all
categories. Basically, the new-book stock fills in any
gaps left by the used and sale stock. Most of our new-book
stock is in rooms one and two in four categories:
juvenile, best-sellers, Virginiana and Civil War.
