Retail Bravery

Last time we were on South Congress we noticed this vintage book store in the process of getting ready to open. That's an act of defiance to the trends of electronic media and online shopping I'd say. We were in New York last week (yes, the Austin pix were on auto pilot) and we visited some favorite bookstores that still survive but we were shocked to see someone taking the risk on SoCo. Will have to get down there and find something we can't live without.

  1. I think maybe you are right and it makes me a little sad to write that this may be so. I am a lover of the printed word and always have at least one or two books on the go. Perhaps a niche market ;like this can buck the trend, hope so. Paul at Leeds daily photo
