Browser-friendly - that's us!
our books are categorized into different sections covering every aspect
of interest from cookery to travel, history to biography, religion & theology,
nature, craft, hobbies etc etc. We have a particularly large fiction
section. We also have a very large and popular childrens section.
Wherever possible books are displayed alphabetically by author. We often
receive frequent positive feedback from customers who come in to browse
who have said "it is the most organized secondhand bookshop they
have come across yet!"
Feel free to ask if you can't find a particular book, we may have it
In addition we also stock secondhand maps, videos, dvds, cds and vinyl.
Who are we?
We are a family run business. We bought the existing
shop in 2003, before this the shop was known as "Fresh and Frozen".
Our aim has been to constantly improve the stock and to give a friendly
and helpful service which we think and hope we have achieved.
Customers are welcome to browse for as long as they wish. If you can't
remember the full details of a particular book, we will help you to identify
it. Dogs are welcome.
