Uppercase and Flow . . . Distracting our contractors?

Love in the Air?

We were pleased to find a gorgeous anthology called The Love Book.

But we couldn’t leave it at that, so we’ve paired The Love Book with a bundle of papers, lace, ribbon, and other bits and bobs – including blank cards – so you can express your love with your own handmade card!

All for just £12.50 . . . Click here to read more and order your package (while supplies last, of course – we don’t have many!)

The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock

mermaid flatlayWhat a treat to discover a debut novel as enthralling as The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock!

Imogen Hermes Gowar has produced a remarkable tale, embroiling us in Georgian London among merchants and courtesans.

It is not just the convincing historical details that makes this novel such a treat, although they certainly help. Imogen has also imbued her tale with convincing characters, a compelling plot, and a dash of magic that brings depression rather than joy.

So how to celebrate the discovery of such a delightful book? We’re offering a special pre-order price, so customers can buy it for £10.50 instead of £12.99. And we’re holding a special party in the shop, which is under construction – customers can pick up their copies, enjoy light refreshments, and also have a preview look at the work underway.

We’ve also scheduled a book group discussion for our customers.

We’d love you to join us – click here to learn more . . .
