Christmas 2020

Dear Friends,

Firstly, thanks as ever for your support during the recent firebreak. The orders came through every imaginable channel, and we kept ourselves ennui-free by hand delivering to the great and good of Swansea.

We’re now back open, fully stocked and ready to rock. We have a huge selection of Christmas cards, advent calendars, decorations and gifts, including Quentin Blake amongst others.

We have signed copies of David Attenborough, James Hook, Geraint Thomas, Ruth Jones, John Cooper Clarke, Kate Probert and more.

Also, we can now announce a brand new online platform to support us. Of course, we’d rather you order and shop with us directly, but if you prefer to shop online, are shielding, or just want an ethical alternative to Amazon, please consider using If you use this link, no matter what you order, we receive a healthy percentage.

It’s also useful for friends or family living away, who don’t have a local independent bookshop.

And as of today, until 21st Dec, for any book you purchase from this list –

– Penguin Random House will donate another copy to Neighbourly – a community business initiative which allows readers to donate books to grassroots organisations including local foodbanks.

In the meantime, it’d be good to see you.


Tim and team.
