Hello Booklovers – We are Bookish Cambridge
We run a bookstall on Cambridge Market and that was entirely who we were until the big lockdown. When the market closed, we looked around us and decided that the only way to survive was to go online.
Having returned to the market, we are running the website alongside the stall and have started welcoming back all of our old customers and some new ones too.
Our market stall operates on Mondays and Tuesdays from 10am to 3.30pm and is located opposite Gap (or more accurately, opposite the gap in which The Gap used to operate – hey ho, times change). Find Marks and Spencer on the market place and we’re no far away!
Who are we?
We are Anne and Kate.
We met at work and bonded over a love of books. Having toyed with the idea of setting up a book business for some time, we eventually decided to go for it and set up our first tiny bookstall on Ely’s Sunday market in the summer of 2017.
Three years on, we are running a successful bookstall on Cambridge market and loving it! We have many wonderful regular customers and new ones every day: all different age groups and from all over the world. Every day is different and although it is sometimes challenging, we have never regretted our decision.
