"The people that come [to Breckenridge] have some money to travel with, they're only here for four or five days, and they're not going to order from Amazon," Richard Sims commented. "They see something, they buy it; that was the picture we got."
Besides books, the store carries a range of gift items from book-themed baby clothing to note cards, greeting cards, puzzles, mugs, and wooden games.
Kim Sims said, "My big find for the year, I think--it's already quite popular--is Cards Against Muggles. It's all Harry Potter and just as racy as Cards Against Humanity, so it's not recommended for the 10-year-olds, but it's a fun game."
