Picture yourself as the owner of a book store.

After more than 30 years in business we have decided that it is time to relax and let someone else take over ownership and the daily running of the bookstore. If you have an interest in owning the bookstore, or would like to learn more about this opportunity, please contact Michael Mitchell at 804-381-6667, or Michael@BRGBrokers.com.

Rare books make great gifts!

In the digital information age, a hand-picked rare book stands out as something truly special. Did you know that we have thousands of used and rare books available online? We have been collecting for over 30 years. Go ahead and browse awhile.

Weldon Bradshaw
My Dance With Grace

My Dance With Grace coverLate in 2009, Weldon Bradshaw was diagnosed with primary sclerosing cholangitis, an incurable, autoimmune liver condition. Over the next two and a half years, as the disease progressed slowly and his liver and health deteriorated, his prognosis grew bleak. By November of 2012, his doctor informed him that if he didn't receive a transplant, he'd be dead within the week. Through it all, Weldon remained steadfast to the promise he'd made his family at the outset of his illness: he would be there to dance at his granddaughter's wedding.

A high school cross country coach and lifelong athlete, Weldon was accustomed to tests of endurance, spirit, and drive. But nothing could have prepared him for this--the race of his life in the face of overwhelming odds. It would be a race for a miracle.
