In the beginning…. There was two of us..
We originally wanted to set up a bookstall, we did some digging, went to a couple of book fairs and decided they were a bit flat. So we set up our own.
We hosted our first event in December 2013 and were amazed at the support we received. We wanted to make a platform for authors, comic writers, poets and artists to show off and sell their work in a fun, laid back atmosphere and without fleecing them, we will never charge anyone for a table with us.
Now the Bookshop has started to grow, we have hooked up with some wonderfully talented people, hopefully we will continue to keep growing.
We have some exciting things coming up in 2015, we’ll let you know soon 🙂
