Made small window posters for The Naked Ape signing, and Angus Oblong signing.

Shelved & listed more Egyptian History, some nice stuff among the lot.
An overweight younger black man came into the store to beg for money (his third attempt) while I was waiting on a customer. He interrupted to ask for some money, and when I said "No, I'm dealing with a customer right now.", he became belligerent and said something like, "It's not like your customers matter." Needless to say he'll not be welcome to return.
