BEST New(ish) BOOKSTORE OWNER: Inkwood Books’ Stefani Beddingfield

BEST New(ish) BOOKSTORE OWNER

Since taking the reins of Tampa’s favorite indie book shop last year from Inkwood founders Carla Jimenez and Leslie Reiner, Stefani Beddingfield — a former customer with discerning tastes and a wealth of knowledge — has raised the bar, offering a bigger variety of events, refreshments on the store’s porch, and personalized staff picks. We salute her efficient and pleasant leadership.  216 S. Armenia Ave., Tampa, 813-253-2638, inkwoodbooks.com.
