Bookbrokers & Kramer's Cafe in the Grand Traverse Mall, Traverse City, MI - started Bookbrokers in 1989, this is our seventh location
Where might we be surprised that you have also worked?
Actually had this store in the same mall in the 90s - at that time, we couldn't put a used bookstore in Mall so we brought in our sidelines: comics, cards and prints; now the mall wanted just the used bookstore, so we are very happy
What do you like to read? What's your current favorite book to handsell?
It's a mix - love my local Author books, so Deborah Wolf and Doug Stanton's latest, are my favorites, as well as my favorites to sell, as well as all of the local Author books...
Who are you when you're not in the store?
I'm here almost every hour (haven't had a day off since May 1st), so I usually just relax and read when I'm not at the store
What's your favorite bookstore other than the one you work in?
All time favorites are Arnold's of TC and Oxford Too of Atlanta, GA - both are gone, but they are still my guidelines as to how to run a used bookstore, amazing that my store has been around longer than both of theirs combined - they are missed!
