January Bookshop of the Month

Victoria Bookshop

Congratulations to Victoria Bookshop in Haverfordwest, who are our Caboodle Bookshop of the Month for January.

 

Victoria Bookshop is a friendly, family run independent bookshop in Haverfordwest, the picturesque county town of Pembrokeshire.

They have a fantastic selection of publications to offer to their local booklovers, and it is the go-to place for anything on local knowledge and interest. They welcome many inspiring authors all year round and we're happy to hear that Caboodle Local helps them to promote their events.

Bethan from the team tells us: 'I love using Caboodle to let people know what new signed copies have just come in or our events. We had Max Boyce and Nigel Owens here last year which I wanted to share with as many people as possible!

Caboodle is a free and easy way to communicate anything to booklovers, whatever your shop is doing.'

Congratulations to the team at Victoria Bookshop who will receive a delicious food and wine hamper to help them celebrate.
