For your peace of mind we still use Royal Mail, rather than new courier companies. Royal Mail seem to be coping quite well with the increased deliveries, so providing you post before the last posting dates ie in the UK , you shouldn't have a problem. Last UK posting dates are below.

We are always very interested in buying Norfolk & Children's ephemera & Postcards

*We are 'old-fashioned' booksellers who used to have a book shop whilst we could make it pay.

*We ARE happy to discuss the books, their content and/or their condition with customers on the telephone (01328 829944) or by e-mail (  because we work full time in the business and we can simply go and get the books off the shelves to answer your queries.

*We DO NOT buy books by the ton for pence from charity shops, we buy with discernment and selectively.

*Customer Service IS important to us

*If these values are important to you please support us, and other professional booksellers like us, such as members of Ibooknet.
