And a new favourite for those who have been part of the sale over the years is our table with “Lin’s Picks”, honouring Lin Taylor’s upbeat spirit, cheerful personality and infallible sense of humour:  you are missed!


Don’t forget to pop into the Specials Room this year — you never know what you’ll find!  We’ve got some older books, some hard-to-find books, journals, art prints, posters, and all kinds of odds & ends.  Sneak a peek below for a preview:
