Are your books new or second-hand?
Both! Our books are selected across the spectrum.
Most of our second-hand books are in excellent condition [or major faults will be noted]. Shabbier copies are put on the sale shelf.

Where do you get your books from?
Everywhere! We look at lots of books to bring you a nice selection to browse.

Do you buy books from people?
Yes – we are always looking for great stock for the shop.
More info at Sell/Donate/Downsize

Do you accept donations?
Yes! We gratefully accept any donations dropped in-store during opening hours. Thank you!

Will you stock a book that I’ve written?
If you are an author with a published book* we invite you to attend one of our “SHOW US YOUR BOOK!” events in-store on the 1st Saturday of the month, 10am-2pm
*If you have self-published your book, unfortunately we are not in a position to consider it at this stage.
PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL DETAILS OF YOUR BOOK [unfortumately the volume we receive has made this an untenable method of selecting stock].

Are you still accepting bags?
Yes! We gratefully accept and reuse clean bags of any size/material dropped in-store during opening hours. Thank you!

Are you hiring?
Not at the moment, unfortunately.
If we are looking for staff we will put the call out.
In the meantime, tell everybody you know to shop independent and local for their books to support jobs in the industry 🙂
