Christmas at the Dollar Book Swap in The Great Western Marketplace - Reno, Nevada

Book Christmas Tree

A photo from my Black Friday shopping trip to the Great Western Marketplace in West Reno, Nevada. Used book lovers will love this store in the indoor marketplace. Parents with children that want used books will really enjoy this store in the market! I overhead that starting next weekend they'll have free Santa photos for kids, but you might want to check with them yourself because I didn't ask the specifics.

Dollar Book Swap Reno is affordable shopping for books, CD’s and DVD’s for the Reno/Tahoe area.  Books are $3 or less, music and movies $2 each and children’s books are $1 each or a bag full for $10.  Customers are encouraged to bring in their excess books to exchange for store credits.  We buy textbooks for cash, and we do trade ins. We want to provide quality affordable used books to our local market.  We also have a goal to get 1 million books into the hands of children and adults in our most at risk neighborhoods in the Northern Nevada/Northern California area.

The ideas discussed in this video brought to mind one mistake I see photographers making when they're selling their photos on custom products in the Zazzle marketplace. There can be a tendency of new (and some experienced) shopkeepers to want to showcasing their entire photo on the custom products available at Zazzle rather than fill the design area available.

Below is an example of what a rounded corner mouse pad would look like if I fit the photo to the mousepad. It would have large white borders.



Below is what the mouse pad looks like when the image fills the entire design area.

Cropping, even extreme cropping, can be our friend. Cropping off some of the Lake Tahoe shoreline doesn't take away from the subject of this photo. We can still see the blue water and shoreline. But, large white borders at the top and bottom definitely distracts…

What is it that you love? Let the world know what you love the most with this fully customizable tee. The "Fill in the Blank" text below the "I Heart" design can be changed.


As you can see in the image below, the size of the heart design can change if needed to match the added text.




I just got done watching Michael Phelps get his 8 for 8 gold medals.
