A Used Book Boutique

A customer came in a short time ago and said that she loved all the changes we’ve made in recent years to the store. She said it was moving away from being just a used book store- towards being a Used Book Boutique. What a nice thing to say. Thank-you #Dbex #bookstore #boutique
