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.
