The Book barge
09 September 2011
Maybe it's because my mum is a dealer of vintage books but I do love a good independent bookshop with a great selection of things you can't live without but never knew you needed. In the beginning of August I was in East London hurrying along a canalside road, late to meet friends and then I saw this wonderful looking barge moored by Broadway Market. I wish I'd had time to have a look inside and buy a few books as from the pictures on their website it looks like a place you'd like to while a few hours away at. It was a nice sunny evening so they'd put a few foldout tables and chairs on the path and were serving tea and cakes to a bunch of people who were browsing. I see on their website blog they have a diary of where they will appear next (mostly the north for this month), today they are in Worcester.
