Keeping the appetites of book lovers satisfied during the temporary suspension of Lifeline H2H’s popular Book Fairs on the North Shore, our Pop-up Book Shop in Roseville will be closing its doors for good on Saturday, 29 August.
Until then, the shop will be brimming with its usual diverse range of incredibly priced books, DVDs, CDs, vinyls and comics for young and old alike.
Since opening on 9 June, the shop has enjoyed enthusiastic support from the community. Its prime location within the bustling Hill Street café/shopping precinct of Roseville opposite the railway station certainly helped, but the offer of high-quality items at such low cost during the time of COVD proved irresistible among passers-by and loyal book fair goers. Many customers have made multiple return visits, as stock is replenished daily, and new categories introduced regularly – History, Literature, Commercial Fiction, Military, Biography, Science and Nature, Music, Philosophy, Languages, Cookery, Crafts/Hobbies, Gardening and Children’s/YA books are just some of the genres represented.
The pop-up shop was made possible due to the generous donation of rent-free premises by real estate firm Marshall.Chan.Yahl. Principal of the company, Craig Marshall, who has been supporting local business and charity organisations for 30 years, gave kind permission to Lifeline H2H to establish its first dedicated book shop on the North Shore.
We sincerely thank Craig and his company for this extraordinary opportunity, which provided Lifeline H2H with an important revenue source in the wake of cancelled fund-raising events, while enabling us to offer cut-price reading material, movies and music to divert and entertain the community during the pandemic.
Meanwhile, the shop is still open for a couple of weeks yet, so head on down for some unbeatable bargains before it’s too late. Our wonderful volunteers look forward to seeing you there very soon.
