Holy Booksales, Batman

Today is a much better day than the last few have been -- largely due to a nice Aussie who came in and bought a number of kiddie books. He works with kids in a preschool and needed some new reading material. Cool. He also gave me some great suggestions for other books to buy for the shop. Then I sold the Delia cookbook and had to laugh thinking about the Librarian and her Delia impersonation, Ha! And a nice little French lass who is a bit of an Anglophile and who needed some more reading materials. A very sweet young lady.

My british order will be here Monday or Tuesday of next week already! Hurrah, there have been several people just coming in for Salt & Vinegar Crisps that have left disappointedly. Well, then, soon they won't be disappointed ;) They will be happy as maggots on day old dinner.

Have had some more interesting people in looking for the American cult products from films. It totally cracks me up, but hey ho! They usually come back to try something out that they saw the first time. I'm good with that.

I am still trying to check prices and decide who I am going to order a few soft drinks and other stuff from. I have 2 German distributors I can work with -- not the greatest prices, but not the worst, either. And they have important stuff like ales, cider, pumpkin, dr. pepper, root beer, mt. dew. blach :P


  1. Hey Michi! Just wanted to say hello! I love reading about all the happenings in your shop. It seems to be going really well! Ciao, Silvia

    ps The maggot-comment would have made me laugh if I wouldn't have been eating a banana while reading. YUCK!

  2. just telling it like it is silvia ;) haha!
