    I am interested in turning my basement into a small store for Magic: The Gathering and D&D - I have many friends who play and think it would be a great idea to have a place where everyone can come. I live on a street where it would be very easy to have a store in the basement of my home! I do have a few questions - How do I go about get a license so I can have product for purchase? And how much would this cost me? When I apply for the license will they direct me to where I can purchase these goods for wholesale? Is there a website you can go on to apply to buy goods at wholesale prices? Thanks for all your help!
