Bookseller Moment: Bookends and Beginnings

Bookends and Beginnings, Evanston, Ill., is relocating from its iconic alley space, and this past weekend was its last in that special place. Owner Nina Barrett posted a video on Instagram, sharing the story of a sweet moment at closing time:  

"Saturday evening. We were about to close for our final day in the Alley, and then a little girl and her father appeared at the door. She had a gift card and a Pokémon book she desperately wanted, so we waited an extra few minutes. So touched to have her as our last customer in the beloved Alley store. And then we closed the door on our last nine years, and began to look toward our new Beginning."
