Bookshop Tour on Four Wheels – The Tree House Bookshop
A real find in Kenilworth was The Tree House Bookshop. It was accessible for Morgan, my trusty powerchair, even though apparently one of the doors was giving some problems. This cosy shop, though accessible inside, has an actual treehouse inside – though I did not take the opportunity to climb inside! It sells second – hand books on a not for profit basis, with donations of stock welcomed. This means that the prices are low even for special books, and are affordable for all. They are well ordered (fiction by authors alphabetically etc) and there was even a small selection of Virago green books. The non fiction section was also well arranged, and I could navigate between the shelves pretty well (for a busy second hand shop anyway!). Its tagline is “Bringing people together through the arts” and it is a music venue in normal times. Profits are ploughed back into the shop, and a local, national and international charity supported. It came over a friendly shop with a lot of stock and a real community feel.
It has a website/ blog with more information and regular posts https://treehousebookshop.co.uk/about/
