Shop Online

Shop Online

Not everyone can get to Matlock to visit the shop so we have looked at other alternatives for you.  

We have a limited number of items online in our Etsy shop for you to purchase.  The items are added and updated regularly, but some of our most popular items will always be listed.  Items such as our Random Book Bundles where you can purchase a random choice of books for a set price, which will then be shipped out to you wherever you are in the world!  Or our popular Subscription Packages available for 3, 6 or even 12 months.

Check back regularly to see what we have available.  If you don't see something you like just get in touch and we'll see if we have it!
