I have been selling books in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada since about 1988. My specialty is classics, literature, scholarly, unusual non-fiction and classic works of non-fiction, science fiction and vintage paperbacks. I am a home based business. What makes my business a bit different is that I bring the stock to my clients, rather than having a store and hoping they will come to me. So I travel to both universities in Winnipeg, the University of Manitoba and the University of Winnipeg. Also I have been to the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan. In the summers I do the Osborne Village Street festival for Canada Day and the Fringe Festival, Quarry Day in Stonewall and other such festivals. Throughout the year I do a variety of other markets and shows and have traveled as far west as Calgary to be a vendor at a show. I have been selling on line since 1999. I also am a regular vendor at Thirsty's Flea Market, 1111 Ellice between Erin and Wall. There I deal in video games, movies, CDs, records, and collectibles.
