Vintage Book Store.

Have you ever watched the movie "84 Charing Cross Road" or read the book? It's personally one of my favorite old movies. My cherished scenes are the ones in the book store. So much to look at in such a small space. If you haven't seen the movie, I encourage you to do so. And to take in these shots of the book store we love to visit.

My favorite spot in the local book store on the tiny island is the tiny windowed office that the  store manager uses for bookkeeping and the daily duties of her job. Upstairs, the other manager was very busy making new dust jackets for books that were waiting to be placed on the shelves. They were talking about a recent visitor to the store who was in to drop off her resume for an assistant manager position within the store. I would hire her on the spot as one of the first comments out of her mouth was "I love the smell of old and vintage book stores. The books tell their story but the smell speaks of history." Perfect new staff member for this vintage book store.

There's nothing like an old book shop. We just returned from our own little getaway and the book shop is always a favorite stop. I like the smell and the treasures...

I love bookstores. If I didn't have the career I have now, it might have been a consideration! X Chy
