Mishaps and Misery
Donald Barliant has owned Barbara's Bookstores since the late 1960's. He tells here the story of Barbara's and the turbulent, changing times in which the business grew up, thrived and sometimes just survived.
This is Chapter Two.
The original Barbara's at 1434 Wells Street in Old Town was in an ancient three-story with two apartments above the store. When I came to Barbara's in the late 60s, we expanded to the second floor, built a steep and precarious staircase in the middle of the store to get to it, and used the new space for a little more book store and an office.
