Congratulations to Kirkdale Bookshop in Sydenham, London, our Caboodle Bookshop of the Month for November.
This month we’re celebrating Kirkdale Bookshop, a long-standing independent in South East London. Freddie from the team told us all about the fantastic work they're doing for the local community and how they make the most of Caboodle Local:
"We are very possibly the oldest indie bookshop in SE London, having opened in 1966, and sell a range of new and second-hand books as well as greetings cards & gifts. We care deeply about our stock reflecting the world around us and actively stock a range of fiction and non-fiction by authors of colour and LGBTQIA+ authors.
We run two book groups every other month, including an open book group where we read both new and old fiction, and an LGBTQIA+ group with a focus on queer narratives and experiences. We also host cultural events such as author talks, exhibitions, children's story time and more!
We use Caboodle to advertise any events we have coming up as it has a great reach to many people who might not otherwise know about us through the usual channels like social media."
Congratulations to the team, who will receive a delicious food and red wine hamper to help celebrate.
