Collectable books in the shop
At the end of 2011 we introduced a ‘rare and interesting’ section in the bookshop (next to religion). It currently it houses a collection of signed books, 1st editions, collectables and folios.
Online book sales
We currently have over 4000 collectable and special interest books in stock. Due to limited shelf space and potential shop lifting problems we sell most of these the internet, through ABE Books and Ebay.
Our current abe books inventory can be viewed here
If you want more details about any of these books please get in touch. If you live locally and would prefer to buy a book you see online in person then please get in touch and we can arrange this.
Also, if you collect any other books such as ladybirds get in touch as we do have stock that isn’t on abe.
