갔던 서점이 닫았을 때 책을 살 다른 곳 찾아내야 했어요.

 

I'm trying to use a few different things I have learned recently in one sentence.

When the bookstore I used to go to closed, I had to find another place to buy books.
갔던 서점이 닫았을 때 책을 살 다른 곳 찾아내야 했어요.

1) Does it make sense? What mistakes are there?

2) I wasn't sure of the order of 책을 살 다른 before 곳. 책을 살 and 다른 are both adjectives modifying the noun, right? So can they come in any order?

Thanks!

    Yes, it does make sense, but '다니던', '평소 책을 사던', '평소 자주 가던' instead of 갔던 looks a bit more natural.

    2) I wasn't sure of the order of 책을 살 다른 before 곳. 책을 살 and 다른 are both adjectives modifying the noun, right? So can they come in any order?
    책을 살 다른 곳 and 다른 책을 살 곳 both are possible.
