The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. ~ Inspired by the meme In My Mailbox.~ It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
I hope everyone had a good Halloween! I spent the morning at the local Amphitheater where our town was holding a Halloween festival. The store had a booth to hand out candy, and like my store it was Harry Potter themed. (You can see the HP decorations at the store on Instagram) I had planned to do wands to give out…but it turned out to be way more time consuming than I cared for, and nixed the idea. I might get enough done to sell for like $1 at the Christmas event though.
It was an incredibly slow month for the store…and it’s sort of hard to drum up interest in a town that sleeps. I say that because the vast majority of those that live here have no clue where Main Street is, or what stores are located off the first street. There is a serious lack of curiosity and I hear “I had no idea there was a book store in town” a lot…the sucky thing is that without that extra revenue each month I can’t afford to place ads. Circle logic is circle.
