Up the stairs you will find a pretty mess of books. With the old lady helping you if you ask. Just search around and see if you can find some books.

Great selection of books at a very reasonable price. A limited amount of pictures and art work. Don't be afraid to make an offer on the more expensive books. Ah also spotted some old cameras for sale.
