Shopping Resale Beats Shopping Retail:A Step By Step Guide to Shop Resale 24/7 Michael Harry
Zola called Selfridges a ´great cathedral of shopping´, and its high priest was Harry Gordon Selfridge, father of modern retailing, philanderer, gamble dandy and the greatest showman the consumer world has ever known. The charismatic Selfridge had created nothing less than a lavish ´theatre of retail´.
Diagon Alley is a cobblestoned shopping area for wizards and witches, and it was Harry Potter´s first introduction to the wizarding world. On this bustling street, seen throughout the Harry Potter films, the latest brooms are for sale, wizard authors give book signings and young Hogwarts students acquire their school supplies - cauldrons, quills, robes, wands and brooms. This magical scrapbook takes readers on a tour of Diagon Alley, from Gringotts wizarding bank to Ollivanders wand shop, Weasleys´ Wizard Wheezes and beyond. Detailed profiles of each shop include concept illustrations, behind-the-scenes photographs and fascinating reflections from actors and film-makers that give readers an unprecedented inside look at the beloved wizarding location. Fans will also revisit key moments from the films, such as Harry´s first visit to Ollivanders when he is selected by his wand in Harry Potter and the Philosopher´s Stone, and Harry, Ron and Hermione´s escape from Gringotts on the back of a Ukrainian Ironbelly dragon in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1. Destined to be a must-have collectible for fans of Harry Potter, Diagon Alley: A Movie Scrapbook also comes packed with removable inserts.
Now a major ITV drama series, Mr Selfridge is a tale of Edwardian excess and the rise and fall of maverick retailer Harry Gordon Selfridge. In 1909 London´s first dedicated department store opened in a huge blaze of publicity. Zola called Selfridges a ´great cathedral of shopping´, and its high priest was Harry Gordon Selfridge, father of modern retailing, philanderer, gambler, dandy and showman. Selfridge´s talents were for shopping and seduction: and as his shop grew in success, so did his list of mansions, yachts, racehorses - and conquests. He lived through the turmoil of the First World War and the glittering excesses of the 1920s before losing millions at French gaming tables and being ousted from his store in 1939. To this irrepressible man, ´the store was a theatre with the curtain going up at 9 o´clock´: Mr Selfridge reveals the captivating story of what happened before the curtain fell. 1. Language: English.

NATIONAL BESTSELLER ? NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY SUSPENSE MAGAZINE Rita Mae Brown and her feline co-author Sneaky Pie Brown return with a mystery starring Mary Minor ´´Harry´´ Haristeen, intrepid kitty sleuths Mrs. Murphy and Pewter, and Tee Tucker, the ever-faithful crime-solving corgi. This time around, Harry and her animal friends track a killer whose trail has gone as cold as the weather in December. NINE LIVES TO DIE Winter has come to Crozet, Virginia, bringing with it a fresh blanket of snow. Harry and her husband, Fair, are hip deep in their usual end-of-the-year activities: distributing food to needy residents, and shopping for outfits for the Silver Linings youth organization´s annual fundraising gala. But buried beneath the white stuff are dark secrets from Crozet´s past-and Harry and her posse of pet detectives are determined to sniff them out. Two Silver Linings mentors have been found dead in suspicious circumstances. If that weren´t enough to chill the bones of the locals, a pair of severed human fingers has turned up in a pencil jar in the bookkeeper´s office at St. Cyril´s church. What does this grisly display have to do with the mysterious disappearance of Harry´s voluptuous high school Latin teacher, a quarter of a century ago? Maybe nothing. But when the animals make another gruesome discovery in the woods behind Harry´s farm, it becomes clear that terrible crimes have been committed in Crozet-and somebody´s gone to great lengths to cover them up. It´s time to stop shoveling snow and start digging for clues. The truth will be revealed. A cold case will be solved. And a twenty-five-year-old love triangle is about to get untangled. The weather outside may be frightful, but Harry and her four-legged friends refuse to be spooked off the case.

Elizabeth is an ambivalent academic living in New York City with Brett and their young son, Harry. Everyone wants Elizabeth to marry Brett, including Brett, but whenever marriage comes up, the intended bride quickly changes the subject. Then Elizabeth publishes a paper on Madame Bovary that catches the eye of an impetuous movie producer, and her life turns upside down. She heads for Hollywood to write a screenplay called Mrs. B., but once there, the questions of marriage, and adultery, loom even larger on her horizon. [CUT TO:] Greta has nothing against marriage. She´s been happy in her new life with Tony, until the day she falls asleep on the sofa and wakes up in love with someone else. Now she has to handle not only the unpredictable needs of her daughter and the plaintive demands of her mother but also the insistence of her own desire. [CUT TO:] Lotte was once a flash dancer in vaudeville. She has little patience with her granddaughter´s refusal to marry that nice husband of hers. She has no patience with death. Chic and sly and uncompromisingly egotistical, Lotte reveres marriage and has mourned her late husband for twenty years, but she´s not at all ready to join him. She has far too much shopping left to do. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Patricia Kalember. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/time/000317/bk_time_000317_sample.mp3.

If someone were to write a novel about the world of big-box retail, it could very well be a grab bag of horrors and tragedies, detailing the dismal pay and long hours that employees suffer in the name of low prices and just-good-enough merchandise all so the bigwigs and the bean counters can stuff their pockets with trumped up stock options. It could be about that. Thankfully, this book isn´t. Instead, it´s a lively romantic comedy that begins when Jeff Martin, son of the owner of the third-largest retailer in the United States, shows up at his father´s Minnesota corporate office, newly minted business cards with the letters MBA after his name, ready to take the reins. There´s just one problem: His father thinks his son is a frivolous playboy who´d run the company into the ground. Jeff has a hard time making a case otherwise, and only some quick thinking gives him a way to prove his worth: He has to work as an assistant manager in one of Martco´s stores for a year. And he can´t tell anybody who he is. Welcome to Delburg, Oregon, an average city with an average Martco. Like all other Martcos, they sell everything from dog food to diamonds. Carol Kinnington is a single mother who´s been trying to put her life back together ever since her husband gave up both her and his lucrative law practice in favor of a young Navajo women who seduced him with peyote and peace pipes. If Carol can just get promoted to Assistant Manager, she´ll earn enough to get out of her dingy apartment and make a life for herself and her five-year-old son. Then a certain Jeff ´´Garby´´ swoops in to take the job she knows she deserves. What happens next is a lively romantic comedy about two people from wildly different worlds whose shopping carts collide - and eventually, against great odds, still find a way to fall in love. It´s Romeo and Juliet on a blue light special. It´s When Harry Met Sally in paper or plastic. It´s a story as old as time i... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nellie Barnett.
