For a local second-hand bookshop look no further than Catching Lives Books, the fund-raising bookshop for Catching Lives which is run entirely by a dedicated team of volunteers.
We occupy the most photographed building in Canterbury after the Cathedral! The Crooked House (also known as Sir John Boys House) is a delightfully skewed 17th century half-timbered three story building at the extreme end of Palace Street. It has projecting jetties over Palace Street and Kings Street and is opposite the famous Kings School.
We have a huge range of second-hand and collectable books and run entirely by a dedicated team of volunteers.
At the moment we are open Saturday, Sunday and Monday mornings only but are planning to get back to a full working week in the near future.
We have put all the necessary measures in place in the shop so that our customers will be safe including a one way system round the shop and hand sanitisers are readily available on entry and exit. See you soon!
We are not currently accepting donations at the shop due to limited space but we will update this page if this changes.
However The Catching Lives Book Shop eBay team have been working all the time we have been shut selling hundreds of books online. This is our site so please have a look and see the kinds of books we need-
If you have any unusual or rare books that you would like to donate to the charity, we can arrange collection. Thank you so much.
