Students, authors, journalists, book collectors and general browsers make up the kind of variety of people who come into the shop. Its a fantastic honeyhole, with an vast selection of books, be ready to dig. All at excellent prices!

I cannot help returning because everyday I discover "new" old books that are dug from the bottom of each of the stacked heaps of titles. A must for old book lovers.
