I'm excited to announce that stage 1 of my plans to start up an independent bookshop in Seaton have begun, I've set up in store at 30 Queen Street, Seaton which you'll know as Devon Art Supplies. I've always sold books at Devon Art Supplies, mostly focused around arts and crafts but i wanted to expand the range i offer and put more of a focus on books so moving forward a proportion of the shop will be dedicated to books.
I've been a lover of books all my life and since starting my masters in philosophy I've been drawn to read more and more non-fiction alongside the fiction i enjoy. I've always dreamed of owning a bookshop but with there already being two fantastic bookshops in Seaton i needed to find a point of difference for my bookshop so not to distract from the ones here that i love; Owl & Pyramid a childrens bookshop and The End a second hand bookshop (both of which i and my children will continue to use and support). So Betty's Books, my new bookshop will be focusing on non-fiction titles, i will continue to offer a wide range of arts and crafts books (and of course the art supplies to go with them) but will be adding further non-fiction titles both new and pre-loved. I've got accounts open with a number of distributors and publishers so i have access to most books, if what you are looking for isn't available in store then please let me know and i'll do my best to source them.
I have called the business 'Betty's Books' you'll find more information on the website www.bettysbooks.co.uk and detailed below:
