To help in expanding and adding new stock to the bookshop. To contribute towards the top floor project, for a community space. Thank You

by Kelly Owen in Alston, England, United Kingdom

Once Upon a Time Bookshop is a small independent bookshop in the heart of Alston. We have recently opened at the beginning of October 2018 and need some help finishing the shop. The shop covers three floors having recently expanded into the top floor. The ground floor for a small section of grown-up fiction, non-fiction, vintage books and gifts such as Tote bags and mugs. The middle floor is a children's heaven with books for all ages from babies to Young adult's and teens. We hope to make the top floor of the shop into a multi-purpose space where we can display books and local art and crafts as well as have a meeting space for classes and groups.  And we are raising money to help fund as well as funding new lighting throughout the shop to improve visibility and make the space easier for readers and visitors.  

The community in Alston and the surrounding area is fantastic and opening the bookshop has been wonderful. And we hope that the bookshop will be a community hub and space used by the community. The finished multi-purpose space on the top floor will be well used by all.  

This year (2019) the bookshop frontage will be repaired, with repaired windows and new white render to project the building for years to come. Winter damage is a problem with wind, rain and snow over the last couple of years damaging the frontage of the building. We hope if we pass the huge stretch goal of £2500 we can help out the landlord in this project. 

Thank you for your support.
