HAHA! Yeah, I've got stuff in the works for after the holiday season. No sense for me to do stuff like that when it's already inherently busy. Although, if we get sluggish early December, I'll be ordering something to give myself another boost! Probably magnets, little traveling billboards..

Great story!!!!  It's funny though, I guess I always pictured you as Estevez :)
It is smart using that little space to keep cost down.  I have been looking and the rent is pretty high here in the Dallas area.  Nothing works if you don't make money.

Nice article. Like you I let my customers "dig" through the back room. At first I din't want them in that area but stuff overflowed at one point and everyone loved it so why not. Love free advertising.

I look like Emilio Estevez if he were fat and ugly..

We were the same way. No customers in the back room. But that cuts out almost a third of our floor space. Now we just tell folks to be careful. Many boxes haven't been gone through, don't know what you'll find kind of thing. Of course, we always do a surface search for family unfriendly stuff as the boxes come in. Since this article came out, about 15 people have come in asking to go through the stuff back there.

How were you able to get the story?  Did they call you out of the blue or did you lobby some?  It really is a great piece of free advertising. :)

A customer visited my shop and fell in love with the stuff. He coined the phrase I now use "anti-boutique". He called the local paper and told them that they have to check us out, that we were going old school, and the rest was history! I think he had a reporter friend at the paper..
