With Christmas fast approaching, I hope you are feeling ready to switch off and enjoy time with friends and family. If you have a few more gifts to get and are worried about the postal strikes delaying things arriving on time, don’t panic.
Felixstowe has a lovely town centre with a good range of stores. One of the real gems of the highstreet is our local independent bookstore, Stillwater Books.
Guess what? Books are super easy to wrap, making them excellent stress free gifts.
You can even ask Will, the store owner, to recommend some books if you aren’t sure what to get someone. Or, if you want to play it safe, you can buy them a Book Token allowing them to choose for themselves.
“Another world. At your fingertips. We are a small, but perfectly formed bookshop, based by the sea in Felixstowe, where we offer a diverse selection of hand-picked books for readers of all ages. From crime to rhyme, beautifully illustrated to top-rated, you’ll find something wonderful to become completely lost in. Not only are we a friendly hub in the local community, offering a safe and nourishing space, but we are also happy to share our working knowledge of tall tales and super stories with anyone who might need a helping hand. We have books that many of the larger stores ignore. Stillwater are in the enviable position of seeking and finding pearls that sometimes sink under the radar of the giants. This means we can give little gems some of the starlight they deserve.” -Stillwater Books, Felixstowe via bookshop.org
