I was in Southport at the weekend and two second hand bookshops had hardback CSs. Unfortunately I dont know the names of the shops but if anyone interested, I could describe where the shops are, prices,etc.Just pm me.

Ooh, yes please - might have to go there for work later this year and am not looking forward to it because it'll mean a week of sitting in traffic! Will PM you :D .

We were in Southport on Maundy Thursday, and as far as I remember Kernaghan's (in the Wayfarer's Arcade, on Lord Street) didn't have any in (though they may have had a shipment since); Broadhurst's of Southport (on Market Street) had several for reasonable rate: there was a G+ in G-dw (quite a lot of tearing but complete) for £50, I *think* it was Triplets; there were quite a few and I picked one out just to look. Joelle, were they on top of a bookcase containing Beatrix Potters in French translation? We went nowhere near KA Parkinson's (on Lord Street, the shell shop) as the place is often a bombsite. The kind of place that doesn't leave you itching to tidy because you wouldn't know where to begin...!

Willl pop on with our other bank holiday SHBS (we went through Cheshire and Merseyside both) when I've found them on yell.com :roll:

Yes Kernaghams (is that the name of it?) now has some CS books but they dont have covers.they are just £25 though.
And yes thats where the books were in Broadhursts-on the first landing? they were next to some Montgomery books. they were £50. so tempted but resisted. Good hunting!

Oooh, I feel a trip to Southport coming on!! Must wait till I get paid though.

Incidentally, I was in Bishop Auckland at Easter and there's a lovely secondhand bookshop there. No CS books but I got quite a few other GO and children's books and they were so cheap - 6 books for £11 :D

Apologies for spreeing but I went to Southport at the weekend and Kernaghan's does have some CS HBs in stock now (from memory, Lintons, Jo and New ) as well as several Angela Brazils and some cheapish Dimsie books. Their children's books section is lovely, I wish I was rich :(

We ventured into KA Parkinsons as well :shock:

I was in a bookshop in Clitheroe yesterday and was buying a CS book (The School at the Chalet hardback for £15!) and the seller recommended a shop run by a lady named Louise Harrison in Addington/Addlington or similar? Has anyone heard of it? He says its only girls literature she sells but only open 2 days a week.

I haven't been to Lou's shop, but I've seen her stock at various book fairs and she has an absolutely wonderful collection of books at quite reasonable prices. But it's definitely worth ringing her before trying to go - her health isn't great, so she isn't always available.

You got me excited for a minute there, thinking that there was a wonderful children's bookshop in Adlington ... I was all for rushing up the M61 to check it out :lol: !

Then I remembered buying a book from Lou Harrison - her shop's in Addingham, near Ilkley. I haven't been there but ordered a book from her over the phone once and she was absolutely lovely: she couldn't have been any more helpful. She's got a website - not sure of the address though - which you can check availability on, and she does have quite a few hard-to-get-hold-of titles.

I visited Louise's shop on Friday, I drive through Addingham on my way to work most days. She's very helpful, and her shop contains the most Chalet school books I have ever seen, everything from cheap paperbacks to hundreds of pounds worth of dust-jacketed first editions! Was a very exciting trip! I have a bookmark with her contact details somewhere....so if anyone wants I could have a look and see if I can put my hands on it!

I'm off to York in a week or so - anyone got any recommendations for second-hand book shops? Also, does anyone have a website address for Lou Harrison? I've bought from her before and she is lovely, but I didn't know she had a website.

Lou Harrison trades as TP Books - - she's listed as such on this web page and this one - along with several other bookdealers in the general area
I can't see that she has a website of her own - she doesn't even show an email address on the PBFA site :D

Lou doesn't have a website and has no plans to create one. She hates using the internet!

You can write to Lou or ring her
71 Main Street
ADDINGHAM Nr Ilkley West Yorkshire LS29 0PD
tel: 01943 830095 or 01943 605806
Open: Friday & Saturday 10.00 - 4.00. Other times by easily arranged appointment.

I'm pretty sure that those are her up to date phone numbers - if not I can try and check them out for you.

she has an amazing range of stuff and you can just ring/write and ask what she has for certain authors or specific books.

Forgive my terrible geography... would Lou's shop be the closest one to Oswestry? I'm moving there in the New Year for a New Job.
