Happy New Year for 2017
We have decided to continue trying to encourage our customers to use our own site for purchases, and so the offer of 10% discount for anyone who decides to buy their book/s here, rather than buying it from one of the agencies that stocks our books such as ABE or amazon, stays throughout 2017. To do this just use the code PBST2 when you make your purchase. (You may only use 1 voucher offer per purchase, so please do not try and use this along with another code).
Unfortunately our year got off to rather a sad & slow start. Some of you may well know, especially if you were expecting to see us at York Fair in January, that sadly Jeffs dad died on the Thursday beforehand, and we thus couldn't attend. This through us into a bit of a tizzy, as we live some way away, so as well as the inevitable sadness and shock, there was a great deal of travelling involved, as well as trying to keep the business going. We apologise if there were any delays with book orders and trust people will understand. Consequently I am just getting round to updating our 'Christmas' Page!!
We are just restarting our Girls Gone By Sale. For a Book to be categorised as a sale book, it must be selling at less that the original 13.00GBP it was originally sold at. (Or if it was a large book, 16.00GBP). To see the books in the sale go to Browse by Category - bottom left hand corner of this page. Scroll Down to Juvenile. Then in the Juvenile section Scroll down to New Books. Under New Books go to Girls Gone By, then Click on sale. I am adding to this regularly so do keep an eye on it.
*We are 'old-fashioned' booksellers who used to have a book shop whilst we could make it pay. Now we trade by Internet and PBFA book fairs.
*We ARE happy to discuss the books, their content and/or their condition with customers on the telephone (01328 829944) or by e-mail (email@example.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.
*Customer Service IS important to us
