Welcome to Oxfam Books Petergate. Of the three Oxfam shops in York, we are one of the two that specialise specifically in books. Situated just a short distance from the Minster on Low Petergate, our stock is made up almost entirely from donations. As a result, we have a very wide selection of second hand books, CDs, art prints, stamps and other collectables.
There are various genres on offer in the shop – from Classic and Modern fiction, to Poetry and Drama, to Sci-Fi and Fantasy, to Crime Thrillers. We also stock a variety of sheet music as well as Fair Trade foods, gifts, cards, and seasonal items. Visit us today for rare finds, thoughtful selections, and second-hand hard covers of another-man’s-treasure varieties.
As part of Oxfam, our remit is to make as much money as we can to help towards Oxfam’s global fight against poverty. The shops form an integral part of Oxfam’s business, with profits contributing to various projects worldwide, while the presence of stores in towns and cities around the UK helping to maintain close links with local communities and ensuring that Oxfam remains visible in the public eye.
