Barter Books in Alnwick, Northumberland is possibly the best bookshop in the world. I have to plan a day trip whenever I go up to Alnwick to allow for lots of looking-at-books time! It is such an incredible place. I visited the shop many, many months ago when my fab friend Tiffany came to stay, and realised this week that I haven’t yet done a post! So better late than never – and better to post this before it gets to a year since our trip…
The bookshop is housed in the old station and retains so many of the original features. You can even grab a cuppa in the station buffet, and they do amazing cakes too! We can also thank Barter Books for rediscovering the ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ posters, as they found some originals there in a box of old books! If you want to find out more, you can visit their website. I hope you enjoy this gallery!
RE is my favourite shop EVER! It’s tucked away behind a garage in Corbridge in Northumberland, and I could spend hours browsing their amazing homewares, stationery, haberdashery and everything else you didn’t know you wanted. The staff are always welcoming and helpful too – it’s generally a brilliant place 🙂 I’ve been quite a few times over the past few months and have put together a little gallery of photos. But don’t worry if you can’t visit in person, you can buy online on their website! 🙂
There is also the most amazing till in RE – thanks to my lovely friend Becky for these fab photos! 🙂
