Walk-in traffic doesn't pay the bills, but a long-time Washington state sports card store has managed to hang around for 20 years.
There are plenty of failure stories in the pro sports memorabilia business, especially local shops which opened-- and quickly closed-- with regularity for several years.
Not all of them have dropped off the map, though. In fact, one store in Tumwater, Washington has been around for twenty years, passing from one owner to another who now has plans to move to a more spacious location thanks in large part to his loyal customers.
The local newspaper offers a profile of the owner and his shop.
