Please take care too and we'll see you soon โบ๏ธ
You and your beautiful shop will be back soon and have no doubt, we supported by your lovely customers. Truely magical place for young, inquisitive and aspirational minds. Hope you ok ๐xx
Oh so sorry to hear that, we will definitely be back and save our money to buy a good collection of books. My little chum is missing you and your beautiful shop and books!xx
We love you and will be back!
Sorry to hear that Octavia, we will be back in when this is all over X
Octavia, I’m so sorry to hear this. You’ve clearly been supporting everyone so well. Sending you lots of love. Happy reading. Xxx
There is no way my children will let me forget the wonderful shop that is Octavias! We will be back with several months worth of book requests when this is all over. Already looking forward to it
We would buy gift vouchers too. You’re a big part of our lives in the holidays and we love what you do, wishing you all the love in the world x
So sorry to hear this. Can I offer my services as a local bike courier? Surely food for the mind is up there as a “necessity” with food for the body...
Awww this is so sad...we promise to keep doing an order from a distance when the service resumes and we look forward to visiting late summer ๐ช๐ค in the meantime take care xxx
So sorry to read this Octavia. We will be back in as soon as we can buying our books from your fantastic little book shop. Cheryl & family x
Hopefully we can all get back to a small measure of normal quite soon ๐ค๐ปand new books to read in the summer holidays. X
Is there any way we can purchase gift cards/vouchers for your store to spend when this is all over? Would that help keep you going?
What a shame we were looking forward to getting in touch, but we will be back. Stay safe x
Oh Octavia ๐ Can you start your own youtube storytime? Build up some sort of following online in the meantime? I bet all of your lovely authors, celebs and customers will promote it? Have a link to buy gift vouchers for the time being? xxx
Hang in there. The world needs quality indy bookshops, now more than ever! X
Oh no! I was just about to contact you for Fred's birthday treat. We will be back as soon as you open up again. Stay well.
We will definitely be back in when life gets back to normal ๐
We'll definitely be back. We love you book shop and always pop in when we're in Cirencester. I have a little book worm who is saving his birthday money to come and spend it with you once this is all over x
Oh that's such a shame. Isla got her vouchers today for her birthday and was looking forward to a phone book spa to keep her ticking over until she can come into the shop. X
Oh Octavia this is so sad, we received Jack's books this morning and he was over the moon with them. Stay safe and we will see you once this is over xx
Oh no, what a great shame – placing an order with you was on my list for this afternoon. Please let us know if you consider doing local orders at any point, mine were for two Cirencester addresses.
Have you thought about doing a storytime live on Facebook? Just to keep you in people's minds? X
We just logged on to your site and seen your message. We are very sorry to read this and hope you can ride out the storm. We will be back when you are and than you for your enduring enthusiasm for literature, particularly children’s. Meanwhile our boy wants to read Norman the Norman and the Really Small Duchess yet again; we only bought it two weeks ago...
Of course, books can be a balm in these terrifying timesโbut as the surge in sales of plague-related literature reveals, sometimes all we want to read are books that speak directly to our terrifyinโ...
Slightly different but our adult book group took to using WhatsApp to include me as I couldn't make it due to a broken elbow and rib - it was fantastic fun - could you try a skype or something similar?
I totally appreciate that decision. Hopefully things will be back on track for the next meeting๐ค
