One more quick festive update

From this evening we’ll be staying open a bit longer on most days between now and the 24th, giving you a little extra time to collect those orders.

Thu 16: 10:30 – 8:00
Fri 17: 10:30 – 8:00
Sat 18: 10:00 – 6:00
Sun 19: 10:00 – 6:00

Wed 22 : 10:30 – 8:00
Thu 23: 10:30 – 8:00
Fri 24: 10.30 – 4:00

The shop is frequently very busy, so browsing online in advance and ordering for collection is absolutely the best approach to ensure that we can keep things moving as quickly and efficiently as possible.

When visiting, please remember that we’ll ask you to wear a mask as well as allowing each other as much space as possible whilst moving around the shop.

Book availability remains pretty good overall, however we are beginning to see some delays with books going to reprint, so our advice is still to order as soon as you can rather than risking leaving it too late. 

If you’re ordering for delivery, please make sure we receive your order by the weekend as the final day for posting in stock items will be Monday 20th.

Okay that’s the update folks! If you’re stuck for gift inspo, take a look at our Gift Guide or drop us a line and we’ll be very happy to help.

Social distancing update

Quick but important PSA before we open today…

The shop is a small space, and wearing a mask whilst browsing our shelves is a really simple way to minimise the risks that Covid poses to our customers and team.

We’ll be asking that you continue to do so until further notice, as well as hand-sanitising at the door and remaining as considerate as possible when navigating the space

We know you’re a lovely bunch and that this likely all goes without saying, but it feels important to verbalise nonetheless.

Stay safe, pals!

Romalyn Ante Reads Two Poems From Antiemetic for Homesickness

ICYMI, last week’s readings from Romalyn Ante are now available to watch again via our IGTV. We felt that these were such special poems that deserved to be available for longer than 24 hours in our Stories, and we hope you enjoy them too.

The Jhalak Prize-shortlisted ANTIEMETIC FOR HOMESICKNESS is in stock now and available for collection or nationwide delivery.
