A local bookstall near the Southbank Centre has become ‘the talk of the town’.
The bookstall has been voluntarily run for nearly 3 years by its current owner Lucie and her brother James.
When asked about the origin of the books Lucie said; “most of the books themselves are from a wholesalers and we just make the prints for them”. This means that even older books are revamped so that they can find a new home too.
Lucie started her volunteering work for her brother 3 years ago after he bought the stall off the previous owners and promised to continue their legacy.
Ruth, a customer visiting London from Australia, commented; “its like being back at home”. And her teenage daughter, Jess also spoke about the quaint stall saying; “it reminds us of the ones we have back home.”
