Building a Bookshop — driving all over town

Today seemed like a more productive day for this future bookseller.

I went to a store supply place to look for bookshelves. They didn't carry that kind of furniture, just items like manikins and clothes racks. But I did pick up a baker's rack (a folding shelf) on clearance and some pretty, recycled bags to give to customers.

After lunch, the realtor and I went over the lease, then I stopped by the insurance company to purchase liability insurance. Next on the list was City Hall, to apply for a license. After dropping off my baker's rack and bags at the shop, I went to look at carpet and picked out a style and color.

I feel tired tonight, like I've put in a good day's work. Hopefully, someday, I'll get paid for it!
