Today it’s our 3rd birthday!
Three years ago on 28 September we took over Bookworm to create Gwisgo Bookworm, book and record shop. We would like to thank everyone for making us so welcome in Aberaeron and for all the tremendous support you have given us. Since we took over there has been a gradual evolution from largely 2nd hand books to a mix of new and 2nd hand. We both really enjoy the challenge of choosing a selection of new titles, fiction and non fiction, that covers a wide range of tastes and yet can be fitted into the small space we have in the shop. If not in stock we can always order books for you and we also love taking on the task of sourcing 2nd hand books that people aren’t able to find.
This year has been a very strange one so far and following the difficult weeks of lockdown we have been so lucky to have had a very busy summer as Aberaeron has been a popular destination for many tourists.
We are still happy to deliver locally or post books out to customers who are unable to visit the shop in person or are still choosing to stay at home. We will also be continuing our ‘BooktoBrowse’ scheme so that you can book a time to browse knowing that you will have the shop to yourself or with your family. We hope that people will find this useful when it comes to thinking about Christmas shopping – we are already seeing people thinking and buying ahead!
