We made it! April 26th marked our one year anniversary here at Seaport Books. Our THANKS to all of you who have made our success even sweeter by your encouragement and support. We’ve hosted 24 events and welcomed readers from across the globe including over 7 countries. It’s been a year of applying know how and discovering need to know. We’ve put together a countdown of the top five things we learned this past year about having a bookstore. Here we go:
#5: Location. Location. Location. It took months to find just the right spot for our bookstore. Being on the channel, next to the town square and in a historic building proved to be a winning combination. We’re so glad we held out for the best!
#4: It takes a lot more than a love of books to run a bookstore – but loving books is what makes the running worth it.
#3: UPS = sweet anticipation. How we love to open boxes of newly ordered books.
#2: There are never enough book shelves. (See #3)
#1: The only thing better than a happy ending is a happy customer.
Here’s to many more years of happy customers, wonderful authors, good friends and great reads!
