Fantastic Book Store, Terrible Management 6/12/2011

My educational background is in Business Management, and I work as a Business Analyst for a major publicly traded technology company. I have studied entrepreneurship and worked in many retail settings (Yes, I've paid my dues), and I must say this store owner's disturbing lack of basic customer service and insulting, control-freak behavior were far from what one would call "textbook" business practices.\r \r While exploring downtown Oakland, my husband and I came across this small, locally owned book store, Bibliomania, and were compelled (as I'm sure many passersby have been) to go inside and admire the impressive vintage book collection.

Find those Collectors' items here! 5/6/2010

For all you book collectors, this is your hidden jewel. It's a very understated shop. But like all used book stores, this one is filled ceiling to floor. The organization is pretty straight forward.
