The Book House..The Last Bookstore Or The Last Little Independent Bookstore In Arlington, Virginia

As far as I know The Book House is the last little independent bookstore in Arlington, Va. All the rest have  closed down and just do business via the internet.
I have seen Ed Hughes around for years at booksales, garage sales, estate sales, library sales, etc. He is very quiet and in apparently great shape for someone who is 91 years old.
The Book House is small and in an out of the way place. I have been in there a few times over the last 20 years or so. I have never seen anyone in there except for the owner Natalie Hughes.
