About Us

We have taken a traditional second-hand bookshop into the digital age with all the usual services of book finding out of print books on request and posting worldwide, plus curating themed literary book packs, a monthly book pack subscription and exciting gift packs based on literary themes. 

About Us - Old Curiosity Bookshop

Book Finding

We find titles for you that are out of print, and hard to find. Phone or email requests and we will find the cheapest copy worldwide, give you a quote and then order it for you. 

Themed Book Packs

Our resident #BookshopFairy will curate a pack of 5 or 6 (weight under 2kg) fiction paperbacks in any genre or mix of genres, posted to any UK address for just £15.  Or choose one from our ready-made products for yourself or have it gift wrapped and sent direct to your recipient. 

Monthly Subscription Book Pack

Order a monthly book pack of 5 paperbacks in any mix of genres for yourself, or to be sent to a relative who hasn’t got a local bookshop or posted to a relative in a Care Home. 

Literary Gift Pack

Choose from our special gift packs that include a selection of books, jewellery, notebooks and stationery and a luxury chocolate bar, wrapped in gift paper with a card and your special message. Making Birthday, Christmas and Thankyou gifts easy…
