 Busiest day at the till
Saturday 17 December saw our highest number of sales through the till. For a shop with lots of low cost stock items, the Christmas period helps pay the bills, so a big thank you to you all for your custom!

  Masks of Mystery & Imagination
  Thank you to everyone - over 150! - who joined our  mask decorating competition for Chorlton Book Festival.   They looked amazing, and even a little scary, in our    
  window display.
