By my count three things make Phyllis’ bookshop exceptional – first, her extensive knowledge of books and the trade. Tell her your favourite author and she can probably recommend something else you’d love by an author you’ve never heard of. It’s a great way to discover writers and books. Second, on the shelves are some real gems. Phyllis looks out for quality and stocks it. Not just books but old literary journals and newspapers. The third wonderful thing about this place is that she hosts all kinds of events in the shop. Check it out. Chat to her. Buy a book and support this space.
