So it's been 2 months at the Long Beach location now.
Had a fair number of people pass though the store for First Friday, and not too few made a purchase. There were a few overly rambunctious kids, and we did have to spend some time cleaning up after them, but nothing much was broken. The music was very loud, but the door is thick and it only blasted when people were entering &/or exiting. The receipts weren't spectacular, but respectable.
Shelved 2 boxes of comic books, lots of Daredevil, various X-Men/Wolverine books, Spider-man, and more, most of them from the late 80's.
Hubbell was here.
Shelved 3 boxes of mmpb's.
Elvis Ultraman & Werewolf-Elvis Ultraman were in attendance.
