Only in a Bookstore

December 7th, 2007  |  Published in Eureka Books  |  2 Comments

This will be short as I have to open the store this morning. First, thanks to everyone for all their support. We really appreciate it. Second, here's one of those little miracles that can only happen in a bookstore like Eureka Books (see post below for details). On our first day as owners, a fellow from Los Angeles wandered in and found what's left of the estate of an LA-area photography teacher. We acquired it from his daughter who lives in this area. The photos mostly date from the 1950s and 1960s. Our LA guest was flipping through the photos when he came upon an 8 x 10 black-and-white portrait of his uncle. Needless to say, we sold it to him at a significant discount. You never know what you're going to find browsing in a real, honest-to-goodness bricks-and-mortar store.

    I couldn’t agree more. I just had a lady come by our shop today that came across her brother’s high school yearbook from 1972. She was thrilled and said she couldn’t wait to see the look on his face (at x-mas).
