What is the charm of renting a bookstore? I decided to visit the ground.
Take near the bookstore, I saw the big door to write the propaganda slogan of "a new owner every two weeks". On the day of visit, the owner is a couple from London, Fuff Jay Par and Alix Waston, which is the third day they stayed in the "Open Bookstore".
They opened their doors around 11 o’clock, because they were their own bookstores, they could wake up naturally, and then decided to open the door.
Every day in this week, Par and Westeron have to give the old book price, classified, to each former owners, write business experience and reminders to the later people, Be deal with with a variety of viscors. Operation bookstore let them understand the hardships of doing business.
When I visited, I didn’t have a tourist season, and there were not many people who came to the small town. They showed me the first two days of "bleak" sales record: I have come eight guests on the first day, and five people are a family. I finally sell a book; I have come to seven guests the next day, sell it. Four books. From the little love book, the truly bookstore, only the real one behind the bookstore seemingly romantic career. However, Par believes that although it is necessary to worry about the revenue of the bookstore, rent "open bookstore", enjoy the slow rhythmic life on the town, and chatting with visitors 上海品茶联系方式 in different countries, it is very interesting. Within the week of renting a bookstore, she also invited friends to perform a long flute and guitar performance, hold the nightmare of book friends, and hope to attract more book friends to visit. Par is a dream of opening a bookstore, but currently in London is more practical. She said the next time I will rent this bookstore, just want to choose more in the visitors.
