Tomorrow I am hosting the first meeting of the loosely named, Vermont Brick & Mortar Society where a few of the used bookstores left scattered around the state – who still have a storefront – are coming together for a few hours. All are members of the Vermont Antiquarian Booksellers Association (VABA). We’ll talk, complain, inspire and assist one another for a few hours and still determine that a used bookstore is a good thing for a community. Even in spite of the world of new books, economy, e-readers, etc.
I’m really looking forward to our get-together. I’ve written some questions I’ve been mulling over for a bit. Such as pricing, rotating stock and the like. I’ll report back how it all went.
Hope I have enough chairs!
