First up, the Peddler's Mall. I have four spaces there: two single spaces side by side that I have turned into a double booth, a wall space, and a separate single booth where I sell mainly books. I love the Peddler's Mall because it is unpretentious and a little freewheeling. I can sell just about anything there, because the customer base is very diverse in background, interests and tastes. I have quite a few regular customers.
This is a look through the double space from the aisle.
Now some views of selected merchandise.
Most everything on those round tables has sold since I took this pic. I tend to have a pretty quick turnover. Now, if I could just sell the tables. I bought them to use at the other site, but they ended up being awkward and in the way. I just want them to go away.
And then there's my book area. I've always wanted to be a bookseller. I really try hard to have an interesting selection at good prices.
And this is my sign. The name "Eddie's Attic" was suggested by Keith, because I have been pushing to have the attic space in our house finished since we bought the house. One of these days, I'm going to have some professional signs made.
And now for YesterNook, my newest spot. I only have one booth there, but would really like to expand. My sales there have not been steady and regular enough for that to happen, unfortunately. The store is a little different from the freewheeling vibe of the Peddler's Mall. It's a little more distinct, with a heavy emphasis on furniture and vintage. It's cozy, almost like a place where you want to hang out and drink coffee, while reading Agatha Christie books.
This is my booth from a side view. Well, most of it anyway.
And some more specific pics.
satirical British fantasy fiction. I am slowly building my selection of books here. I'm thinking that will help my sales. I'm having to be more selective in my choices, though. There's a booth selling nothing but books right down from me, and I don't want to duplicate his inventory. That would be boring.
I'm also working more comics and graphic novels in, as well. I'm trying to emphasize Silver Age classic stuff and alternative/independent titles that I think will appeal to the customer base here.
This telephone bench is one of my latest acquisitions. I have high hopes for it!
Well, that's the tour! Thanks for stopping by! If you're in Louisville, consider stopping by to check things out in person. Maybe I'll be there working.
