We are a unique destination retail concept – Books, Café, Deli & Home, based in the rural Scottish Borders. The shop is a haven for booklovers and foodies, focusing on quality products, customer experience, staff knowledge & passion. We are a very family & tourist-friendly space with extensive customer parking and free nappies in our toilets!

We bought the Mainstreet buildings in 2007. After fairly extensive renovations, the bookshop and café opened in June 2008. Our mission has always been to champion what we love, and offer customers a wonderful shopping experience. In 2012, we developed the beautiful barn behind the main shop to create our Deli & Home shop.

Ten years on, the shop has gained a wonderful, loyal customer base, with new people coming through the doors every day. Many of the latter are attracted by our lively events programme, over the years, these have included Margaret Atwood, Michael Palin, Alexander McCall Smith, Maggie O'Farrell and Michael Morpurgo among many others.
