As of today our little shop is one year old. We’ve weathered crises, floods, a broken till, and that horrible moment when we thought we would have to open the shop with a huge safe sat in the middle of the shop floor. Needless to say it has all been tremendous fun and we’ve sold nearly 24,00o books and raised loads of money for the excellent work that Oxfam does around the world. We could never have done any of it without the kindness of the residents of Balham (and beyond) who give us their time, books and hard-earned cash.
So, true to form we’ve got balloons. There are sweets for anyone who’s in the shop today and, as always, our utmost gratitude. Thanks Balham, here’s to many more years nestled on your high street.
