Effective Bookstore Displays
This board is a place for independent bookstores to share merchandizing ideas: tables, signage, shelving, and more. Created by Gary Robson of Red Lodge Books & Tea, it is part of a project by the American Booksellers Association to help indie stores work together and share ideas. If you'd like to share your favorite book displays, please follow this board, and then contact Gary and he'll add you as a group member.

Blind date with a book! “The books are wrapped in paper and have different designs on them, and then a few words vaguely describing the subject matter of the book. Things like 'Drama', 'Plot Twists', 'Espionage', etc. The only thing exposed on the book is the barcode that you use to scan the book out."
