Just a quick post - Peak Volumes at Tideswell opens its doors for the first time at 11 am today!
Have you been following our story so far? We are planning to be open for Easter, and our team of wonderful volunteers is sorting and fettling - it's amazing how many people really do know their allergies from their -ologies!
So do you want a sneak peak?
Doesn't really tell you much does it. Sorry.
Is that better? We've got a great vintage paperbacks section...
...and here's one of our favourite recent purchases!
See you over the Easter weekend.
What's the story so far at Peak Volumes?
You'll have to peer in to find out, but it's a bit dark...
Perhaps tomorrow's post will shed a bit of light...
There are some curious things going on in the Peak Volumes window. Are you curious yet?
If that hasn't assuaged your curiosity, perhaps this will...
You're not afraid of spiders, are you?
The pig certainly doesn't seem to be!
Have you worked out the title of the book? This web-site might help... and hope you have enjoyed window number three.
What's going on here?
Can't you see? Try again...
You'll need to come a bit nearer...
Have you worked out the book title? Welcome to window number two of our March window display!
The countdown has begun and we are getting closer to opening day! Want to see what's going on?
You'll need to come closer...
Have you worked out the title of the play? Welcome to window number one - come back tomorrow for surprise number two...
All the shelves are now in place (thanks, Julian) - the next step is the rest of the books!
We have had an army of volunteers over the past two weekends helping us to sort and shelve books, fuelled by tea and lemon drizzle cake. Thank you to you all - we really couldn't have done it without you!
There is still a lot of sorting that will need to be done but at last it's really starting to look like a bookshop...
While the hammering and sawing and drilling still goes on in the back two rooms of the shop, we have spent a busy weekend (with some invaluable help) starting to shelve the books in the front room and corridor.
Who needs a gym when you can move a box full of books!
Peak Volumes - a bookshop the way they used to be
