...selling and exchanging secondhand books

"There are perhaps no days of our childhood we lived so fully as those we spent with a favorite book."

- Marcel Proust

Wally's Story

I took over this bookshop in May 2014 from the wonderful Simon Alloway and after a name and interior layout change it was ready to go!! I am passionate about reading and collecting books and have been since a child. For me sharing the pleasure of books with other people is a dream come true! Whether you are a toddler or a teen, read Classics or Mills & Boon, I will help you find the book you need. Nothing gives me greater pleasure then a customer who is pleased with one of my recommendations. I hope my bookshop can give local and visiting book lovers a friendly and welcoming atmosphere in which to browse and buy.
