I have been delighted to receive some positive media coverage of the shop despite only having been open for a brief period.
I have already had numerous customers visit the shop following on from the Post article and hopefully the same will be true with this Guardian feature. It is satisfying to know the shop is appreciated and is all the motivation I need to strive to keep up the quality of stock on offer.
With the increasingly prevalent view that bookshops (and books for that matter) are passe, such favourable coverage is a great reassurance.
My thanks to Natalie Banyard of the Bristol Post and Sarah Baxter of the Guardian for their part in the publicity.
