Books – you want them, we’ve got them. First come, first served, first editions, collectibles, cookery, coronations; transport, topiary, topography; art, Assyria, aardvarks; science, science fiction, pulp fiction, fiction fiction; banned books, books on books, biographies; history, hair styles, horses, hieroglyphics, hydroponics; annuals – we don’t only sell annuals, we have an Annual Sale from 1st – 30th September. All books under £8 (that’s probably 70% of our stock) will be half price.
First come, first served on the 1st is fine, but, if you can’t make the first day we’ve 1000s of books – enough for all, any time you visit … and after the 30th? We begin all over again, restocking for winter’s hunkering down (with normal, but very reasonable, prices resumed).
For non-bookists, we’ve a great range of unusual greetings cards and a tiny room stuffed full of curios, curtains, china; slates skates, Sheffield plate, pictures, pottery; lampshades, linen … but no Limoges (at the moment).
We’ve been featured on ‘The Robert Elms Show’ BBC Radio London; as The Bookshop in the film ‘The Buddha of Suburbia’; and in the Desi Movie “Strangers”, featuring Nandana Sen. Despite being two minutes from Robert Adams’ masterpiece Osterley House, the Guardian newspaper described us as ‘The Jewel in Osterley’s Crown’.
