We have a fantastic selection of children’s books in our Petergate shop, and for a limited time, younger readers may be able to take away one of our activity packs, which includes colouring and puzzles to keep them busy this summer.

While you’re here, why not see if there are any treasures lurking on the children’s shelves to entertain tiny travellers on long car journeys.

As for older children and teenagers, we have a fantastic array of titles for 9-12 year old as well as fiction for Young Adult readers.  Our selection is forever evolving, so keep popping in to see what new treasure there is to discover.

Love is in the Air…

Here at Oxfam Petergate we are all swooning over our Valentine’s Blind Date with a Book event. What’s that I hear you say? Well for just £2 you can find that special one, that new literary friend, and fall in love with one of these mystery books:

We have wrapped up some of our books in plain paper, with a few little clues written on them. So whether you like the tall, dark and mysterious, or you’re more of a fan of a flirty little romance novel, there’s sure to be something amongst our blind date hopefuls who’s right for you.

And if none of them catch your fancy, then don’t despair. We have delicious Divine chocolate hearts, Valentine’s cards and, the perfect Valentine’s gift, our unwrapped cards, which help to provide everything from bees to seeds to water to education! So come into the shop for all your Valentine’s needs (or if you just really fancy some fairtrade chocolate and a good book).

Our blind date with a book event will be running from the 11th to the 14th of February, but be quick! We only have a limited number of books (but if you do miss out or don’t see one that piques your interest then feel free to check out all the other wonderful books we have in store). See you soon!
