Many thanks again to the 78 for hosting our quiz. I was unable to make it this time, but by all accounts everything went as well as usual. Next one should be around May.


Crime month is winding down and making way for our retro Childrens books promotion. If quirky ephemera in this category appeals, please drop in. I’m not 100% sure exactly when it is but I’ll post here when I know.


We have some excellent events coming up in March. As I’ve previously mentioned here, during the week of March 8th, Oxfam is inviting you to celebrate women’s acheivements as part of Interenational Women’s Day (‘Have a Bit of a Do’ is the page name at Oxfam’s website).

At the bookshop we have Caro Ramsay, the celebrated crime author, returning for her second reading on Wed 9th March at 7.30. Tickets are available from us for £3 each. I found Caro to be an engaging and generous speaker last time. Recommended.

Also booked (date to be confirmed) is Pat McIntosh, author of medieval mysteries. Pat has also done a reading with us before. For the event that time she changed into a home-made reproductions of a medieval outfit for the event.  The Q&A involved many questions about historical detail and its incorporation into a contemporary genre. Unique, a bit of fun, and a must for fans.


Lastly today, just to draw attention to our refreshed New Product ranges on the cusp of Fairtrade Fortnight.

The new gardening range covers a range of goods from gloves to the popular Ellie Poo planter. There are even seed packs and plant kits for children that contain paints to customize their pot as they like.

The relaunched Everyday range includes some of the Faith toiletries range from previous years as well as the sub-range of toilet cleaner, fabric conditioner and washing powder that we’ve had in some form or another for a few years now. And the popular lipbalm that appeared before Christmas is also available, along with many other lines. Best to pop in to us and have a browse.
