    I live in the Boston area. Ever since I was a kid I have always loved stationary and card stores! My best friend said that I should run a small card store and I'd love to do that but I don't really know where to start. Do I need a business plan? How much money will I need to do this? I love the idea of a shop but I realize that many business are online today. As you can see I have a million questions. I applied to work at a stationary store a couple of years ago but they wouldn't hire me because I'm overqualified. If someone out there could recommend a good book on the subject or a good mentor that would be great! Cheers.
