But they're vintage ...
New Upcoming Authors:
(you figure them out - if you can't,just ask - and remember, on some of them, they may have the name right, just not the pronunciation - I'm spelling them like they said them)
Jill Shallis (Hey, once again, at least they're asking for her!!)
There are no stupid questions ......
After being told that we don't have that book, and neither does our other store. Now we've suggested *shudder* our competition, 'cuz we're like that.
"Do you know if they have it?"
(Yeah, I go through their inventory every night after they close ...)
"Do you have their phone number?"
(Yep, number 0 in my speed dial)
Or, we won't take their stuff, and again have suggested that "other" store:
"How much will they give me for it?"
(How much do you want? I'll call ahead and suggest it.)
You're bringing us what?
"I have 30 boxes in the truck, where do you want me to put them?"
(at that other store ....)
"These belonged to my grandmother and she only read them once"
(Every Sunday while driving her car to church)
"I have two bags of magazines, will you take them?"
"No, we only take current magazines, unless they are .... "(names off very few exceptions)
"These are from the 70s, they're vintage."
(I'm going to shoot her ....)
