December Bookshop of the Month

Pickled Pepper Books

Congratulations to Pickled Pepper Books in Enfield, who are our final Caboodle Bookshop of the Month for 2021! Their pop-up shop in The Culture Palace in Enfield Town extends their Crouch End offering to a dedicated events space, bringing regular children's theatre, storytelling and book groups to the local community as well as a selection of the best children's books. Author Piers Torday has described the Crouch End store as "a joy", and since opening this autumn we've loved to see the team at the new pop-up creating such a busy programme of events to share with local booklovers on Caboodle. 

Chloe from the shop says, "Having just recently opened in Enfield Town, we’ve found Caboodle an invaluable way to reach the local book loving community. We list all our book based and theatre events and hope we’re bringing something new to the locality. It’s been great for getting the word out!"
