When I asked my daughter if she wanted a shopping trip ahead of her birthday she asked if we could do a book shop trail. The hours we have spent browsing over the years has fed her love of books well. Across Lancashire we are fortunate to have a great range of independent book shops. We have to put Storytellers Inc in Lytham on our list, it's run by a mother & daughter partnership with mum Carolyn looking after the business and general running of the shop and daughter Katie being the creative input with literature knowledge and running outreach schemes with some local schools.
They are a specialist children’s bookshop stocking a wide range of beautiful books for children of all ages including teens and young adults. Many new titles are added to the stock every week and they search out quirky and unusual books often from smaller publishers to provide a unique range and choice. The book stock is complemented with selected toys, puppets, gifts, cards and wrapping paper. As well as the main shop area they have a workshop area where book clubs are run and story based events are held on a weekly and monthly basis. Their ultimate secret weapon that makes us unique is the secret reading den, with bean bags and decorated in an Under the sea theme complete with a cuddly octopus, a crab, a seahorse, a lobster, a stingray and not forgetting the great white shark!
