Happy New Year for 2014.

We are now in the process of updating our Fairs list for 2014 so shortly you should be able to see the Fairs we are attending this year. There are a couple of different locations for us this year - and please note our Star event - the new Book Fair at Blickling Hall on Saturday 14th June where Jeff & I are Fair Managers. This new fair has been very well received by the book world, and we have a waiting list of booksellers wanting a stand, should any of those who have got a place, fall out at the last minute. In such a fantastic location, we really hope it will be a success - do come along and support this Summer Norfolk Book Fair. For more details just ring us on 01328 829944.

We Buy and Sell Second hand/Collectable Books and Ephemera, Specialising in Children's Items, Crime Fiction and John Clare the Poet. We are also very interested in 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.
