CONGRATULATIONS to Don and Iris Sparkes, who have seized the initiative in Derbyshire following the recent demise of Buxton Christian Bookshop and are now providing a mobile book service for the area from the back of their car.
Although it’s a low-key venture, the aim is to sell books at bargain prices whenever possible, alongside a range of cards, gifts, CDs and DVDs, with special orders and bookstall services available on request.
It is a very, very small venture carrying stock in the back of our car to sell as we go to churches and events in our area. We are not a shop but 2 people in our 70s trying to fill a gap in the market. We are not sure how things will go but thinking of doing bookstalls at local events.
We do not envisage travelling too far out of our area but to serve the local community. It is not a full time commitment and we are not having regular opening hours but just going where there is a need. At the moment we are feeling our feet so to speak so we are letting people know via our flyers.
