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.
We had thought about setting up an online bookstall but had never seriously attempted a website. The Coronavirus situation forced us to think more seriously about the idea. One benefit of the lockdown situation has been ready access to some very helpful technical help within our wider family circles. Huge thanks to Jess and Joanna, without whom we would not be online today.
