Scarthin Books

Gill Sans poster (2)I have never been to Scarthin Books, but it is one of the most influential bookshops in the development of the Tree House.  Once I had begun to think about opening a second-hand bookshop, I was looking at other bookshops on the web, and came across this video for Scarthin Books, and it contains so much of what I would love to achieve.  They sell new books as well as second-hand, and have a proper cafe, neither of which I am planning at the moment; but in terms of the bookshop itself, its ethos, its aesthetic, its quirkiness amid the order, it’s what I aspire to for the Tree House.

Do watch this wonderful video, it really is a joy.
