Our gifts & greetings...

From trinkets to toiletries, candles to cards, stationery to jewellery, puzzles to pickup lines, toys to tigers (???), we have gifts and greetings you'll love to give - and receive.


Children's events

From our hugely popular annual Harry Potter Book Night to celebrating Paddington, Elmer and many other book characters over the years, we thoroughly enjoy sharing our love of children's books.

Our monthly Bedtime Storytime is a joy. Children come along in their pyjamas with their favourite teddy, rabbit, kangaroo (?) and enjoy being read to from fabulously illustrated picture books washed down with a drink and a biscuit.

We hope to have Bedtime Storytime up and running again in Autumn 2021
