Why is this exciting? Because we always buy six-shelf carts. I'm not sure why we tended toward flat bottom carts at Schwartz--the six shelf carts are almost the same price, and to our taste, six shelves are much handier than four plus a flat surface.
But of course the most exciting thing is that library carts (or sloping booktrucks, as they call them) now come in so many colors. I counted 19 different shades on the Demco website. Prior to this, it was all standard black. After a lot of soul searching, I settled on burgundy and mocha. As much as I like many of the bright colors (and I am pretty much obsessed with apple green, for some reason), they just didn't seem right for the store. But if I ever open a gardening or tween girls clothing store, I'm going for apple green and purple. Though of course in that case I'd get flat shelves.
I'm hoping that by the next time a cart breaks, there's something along the lines of olive green. But if they don't listen to my advice, I have my eye on the cerulean blue.
