Expensive

This shop has a great selection of children's books. But they are quite expensive. Especially the older ones. Some of the books could be found in the same village for less.

All things Children's Books

My husband loves this bookshop - he can usually find an Eagle or Dan Dare annual to take him back to his youth.

Loads of annuals from Daily Mail ones to Rupert to Dan Dare to Mickey Mouse.

Novels in a-z order - but owner can help if you are looking for something in particular.

Also has a mailing list that will keep you up to date with their news.

A must see bookshop on a list of things to do in Hay.

Rare-ly better children's bookshop!
Sep 2016 • Friends
This is a fun little bookshop selling old children's books, with entire sections dedicated to Rupert the Bear, Winnie the Pooh and other traditional characters. Most of the books are rare and out-of-print editions. The shop is 3 quirky rooms, with a variety of display places. Wish I had taken along a list of old series that I already have, as I kept finding books from the 30's and 40's, asking myself if I already own it or or not!
The shop is easy to find in Hay, across from the clock tower. It's purple storefront is easy to find! I cannot say much for the shopkeeper, who didn't even crack a smile when people entered, but the book selection will take me back.
Could have easily spent more time wandering around and looking at books. Prices ranged from very affordable to expensive editions. There is an online shop too at the web site where you can browse for titles and maybe find something to add to your collection. Happy reading!
