We are a family-run firm of booksellers who have been trading for over 25 years. Our aim has always been to supply decent condition books on a wide variety of subjects at realistic prices. We are based in the small Lincolnshire market town of Horncastle , situated midway between Lincoln and the coast. We know from our own experiences that buying "blind", so to speak, can be a shade tricky so we are always happy to supply pictures and try for as full a description as possible. We pack well and do our best to post promptly (within a couple of working days of receipt of order). We'll take things back if, after all that, you feel something's not as described. Occasionally Royal Mail lose an item. In such rare occurences we do what we can to try and trace it. By and large they're a miracle system - we send out umpteen parcels a week and most of the time they get there. But if there is a problem we try genuinely to help sort it out. We think we've got the balance about right. Our feedback on various sites seems to suggest this. We pack things efficiently and often list commonplace items at absurdly low prices simply because we are a business and would rather our books moved than sit languishing in a store-room somewhere. Many thanks in advance for buying or just looking. We know what a bewildering choice is available on-line these days. We appreciate you choosing us. You are most welcome as are any queries.
We go to a lot of trouble to fully describe each item on our listings - however if
you think something's not as described return within 14 days in the same condition
it was received for full refund.
Postage and packing is charged at our rate listed with ABE. However it is worth pointing out that UK postage just goes on going up and that sending a huge Fine Art book to Timbuctoo is simply not going to travel there for six or seven quid. We feel that clarifying this is in everyone's interests and mention it because mostly we're not paperback merchants and include a sizeable number of hefty books in our stock.
CODA vis-a-vis COVID 19 January 2021:
In recent months we have lost a significant number of books internationally through non-delivery. Since the situation looks to be ongoing chaotic we've taken the difficult decision to send all but the cheapest items abroad using only tracked and signed for. This inevitably puts the costs up. Apologies but nobody wants to take responsibility for lost untracked parcels.
