Bookmark is a secondhand bookshop in Falmouth, Cornwall. I handpick all the books in my shop and they reflect the local culture, trends, and demands. We carry a large range of stock. Some we never knew existed and some are quite rare.
'Bookshops are a gift to our communities.’ Love them back.
Bookmark has been trading in Falmouth, Cornwall since 1997. From 2004 I moved into the industry. When I bought the shop and it's with it's entire stock I was a complete novice and I wasn't sure just how long I would be here. I quickly realised that I really enjoyed running the shop and the business and sixteen years later I find that I absolutely love the book trade and my shop and what I do.
I run my shop with a sense of meaning and purpose. It goes much deeper than that and folk who come here feel it too. I buy from people and sell to people.
As a professional business-woman with the human-touch, nothing is too much bother and I love personal contact, so do call, email or drop into the shop for a chat. I am happy to consider buying single volumes as well as medium or large collections.
My books have captured the hearts of the people of Falmouth and beyond with something for everyone: historian, student, hobbyist, artist, crafter, lover of humour and the classics. Some have their daily ritual to come and view my window display. I love that.
When I'm not in buzz corner you just may well catch me out on the water either rowing around the harbour or sailing to one of many gorgeous Cornish creeks or rivers.
