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 (peakirkbooks@btinternet.com)  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.
