We want to find forever homes for our rare books by creating an online web shop so we can show off our hidden gems to a much wider audience

by Booklore Community Book Shop in Blairgowrie, Scotland, United Kingdom

So who are we?  We are Blairgowrie and Rattray Development Trust and we are the "One Voice" for our community.  Our bookshop, Booklore, is a little oasis of calm in the bustling town of Blairgowrie and sits at the heart of our community where our welcoming volunteers are always on hand to share their amazing knowledge of Blair and beyond.   

All of our profits go directly into supporting local Community Groups through our small grants fund.  These funds are aimed at improving the lives of the Blairgowrie Community,

We sell books, and we sell them in a very traditional face to face way, which we love but we would like to attract a wider audience for our Rare Books Collection by going online.

We are fortunate enough to receive donations of books from people of all walks of life and in amongst those donations we often find little gems.  But these little gems sit  on our shelves patiently waiting on the right person to come along and take them to their forever home.

After 10 years trading successfully on the High Street, it is time to go digital, taking us into a new era and a first baby step towards realising our bigger dream.

Our big vision is to become a destination bookshop for the people of Blairgowrie and beyond.  Somewhere people travel far and wide to visit, spend time in, learn new things and come away feeling like they've just experienced a little bit of magic.
