Several of those bags held quilting, weaving, knitting and other crafts book purchased from a collector's family. We now have a new section in the 2nd room where they perch. If that is your interest come check them out.
I have often had people come by and say they just want to browse to get away from the craziness of the outside world. It seems to get crazier and crazier. I have always loved to unwind in bookstores and stationary stores myself. Are there any of the latter ones left? Though a good hardware store gets my attention also. In the early days here when Caldors Dept store was just down the road (in what is now the Walmart plaza) I would wander the aisles after a hard day at work and get refreshed. Rarely bought anything but it helped center me. And I expect the air conditioning on a summer day helped!
Have bought a small but interesting collection of post cards recently also. Am slowly filtering them in and spiffing up the topical boxes as I go. Not many local ones but some real photo and others.
Onward to some more stocking during this quiet late Saturday afternoon.
