Me & My Shop

Welcome to my bookshop!

The Bookseller Best Independent Children’s Bookseller 2013 

We opened our doors in March 2011 on a truly memorable day with Lauren St John cutting the purple and gold ribbons! And what fun we’ve been having ever since.

I have always been passionate about children’s literature and learnt about the book business working for Ottakar’s and then Waterstone’s. But now I finally have my own beautiful shop in my home town of Cirencester.

While you will find more than half the stock in the shop is dedicated to children’s books (from buggy books to fab teen fiction and your favourite classics!) we are also increasing our selection of titles for grown-ups; bestsellers and beautiful reference books.

Pop in for a look around, have a seat and browse at your leisure. We’re always delighted to recommend books for adults and children. Keep an eye on the Events page for book signings and the ever popular book groups – sometimes cupcakes just for fun!

We’ve had the most amazing two years – the Bookshop was runner up in the Telegraph’s Best Small Shops in Britain Awards in 2012 and this year we were THRILLED to win Best Children’s Independent Bookshop in The Bookseller Industry Awards.

I look forward to meeting you!
