Every once in a while we get a donation that inspires debate amongst us all, this week it has been around 20 or so Ladybird books. I think most of us have grown up with these and enjoy reminiscing about such things. Furthermore these are genuine collector’s items, which got me thinking – what is it about these small hardback that have made them collectable and even loved?
Of the three Oxfam shops in York, we are one of the two that specialise 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. We also stock 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.
