Katie Proctor '00, owner of Books with Pictures, recently purchased a historical 1927 building in Portland, OR that was home to Longfellow Books. She formed a limited liability corporation with 19 partners and raised $400,000 in three weeks. She invited friends to open a record store – My Vinyl Underground – in the basement and she began the permitting process that will allow six food carts in the parking lot. She launched a Kickstarter campaign to pay moving expenses. And she invited her comic-book buddies to help with the renovations that will allow her and her kids to move into the second-floor apartment, above her new store.
