Flea Market Saturday: A Quirky Old Favorite UPDATED

In a long ago post, I told you about a decidedly quirky bookshop located next to a millpond in Cromford, Derbyshire, called Scarthin Books, which claimed to be "Britain's most enjoyable Bookshop".

Also, that besides new and used books for all ages, it offered rare and antique tomes, and that its Cafe Philosophique offered food for the mind as well as the body. After exploring the site, I heartily agreed!

Well, it's still most decidedly quirky, it's still next to a millpond in Cromford, and it still offers new and used books for all ages as well as rare and antique books. Plus, its Cafe Philosophique still offers food for the mind as well as the body, and it can still claim to be "Britain's most enjoyable Bookshop".

But you no longer have to take my word for it. See for yourself in this delighful video,
which I'm combing for storage tips since I can't seem to stop acquiring "must have"
books for my own library. But can any true book lover say that's a "bad" thing?

Enjoy!
