We are developing our stand at Bridge Street/Place, Worksop Market, (8.00am – 3.00pm, Fridays & Saturdays). A new line has been added to our sales. From Friday 13th May 2022, (we are not superstitious), we will start selling a selection of various genres of fiction novels. There is a lack of bookshops in Worksop with W.H. Smiths, the stationers, being the main shop.

We have found a warehouse who will supply us with good quality secondhand books by well known authors. This 1st weekend will show us if there is a need for fiction novels in the town. We don’t know what will be coming until the boxes are delivered. They are secondhand books, not old books, as some of the titles are not very old. Some authors include; James Paterson, Bernard Cornwell, Richard Osman, Ben Elton, etc.

I am now without a car, and will be for a few years. This has caused me to reassess what markets we can attend. Any markets we attend now has to be within traveling distance of public transport. My legs have almost healed and we have started visiting markets again.

We have restarted traveling to the Worksop market on Bridge Street, which is only five minutes walk from the bus station there. This allows, Clare (my stepdaughter), and myself to carry two carrier bags each with us. These contain 100 booklets, 40 packs of cards, advertising material plus other things. We are hoping to be attending each Friday and Saturday.

We are booked to attend Auckley Show on Saturday 20th August 2022. It is situated on Ravenswood Drive, Auckley, Doncaster, DN9 3PA. It is well sign posted. It is a large show and we will be in the large Craft Marquee. We look forward to it but face the problem of transport as the showground is some distance from the bus stop. This proves the same problem with some venues where are booklets are sold. Postal deliveries are being considered for these.
