When the bookshop closed in 2013 I decamped with as many books as possible to home, more precisely a purpose built insulated "Lodge" at the top of our garden. The idea was that I would work out of there but so far I have been unable to fit a desk in ! Although no longer directly involved my sister Linda still goes out scouting for books. She was always good at that but hated the selling, which is where, of course, I come in! On a technical level postage for multi - orders will usually work out cheaper than that shown. If in doubt then contact me before ordering. August 2018 - Still no desk. I think books breed overnight! October 2018 - Table in at last, albeit a coffee table (no coffee machine yet).
Cash with order. I accept payment by credit/debit card (Visa/Mastercard but only by ordering through abebooks)and Paypal. Postage is extra but not always that quoted by ABE - with light books I am able to reduce the cost of shipping on line but only after you have sent your order. The description of the book will indicate any alteration to the stated postage. Please phone or email if you wish to know in advance how much shipping is likely to be.
ABE indicates returns policy and I abide by that.
I aim to process each order on the day after notification and also make every effort to post that morning. I do not access the web on Sundays so orders received after 10 A.M. Saturday will not be processed until Monday morning. Postage costs are indicated with each book. U.K. customers have the option of 1st class or 2nd class delivery. The default setting is 2nd class. International orders are shipped by airmail. If your book order is heavy or oversized, I may contact you to let you know extra shipping is required. The description of the book will indicate if extra shipping may be required as is the case for light items where a reduction can be made.
Packing will be either by padded envelope or mailing box. In addition I also protect hardbacks with bubble wrap and paperbacks with film fronted bags.
Books up to £50 are insured by Royal Mail. Above that figure I will take out insurance. In addition at no extra cost some books will tracked/signed for.
