We have also joined numerous shops in signing up to Bookshop UK, a new online platform which is a beneficial alternative to online giants, helping indies and the local high street. This partnership is a great way to complement our existing services.
Every book that you can find in stock on Bookshop UK can be ordered directly from Tales on Moon Lane though.
So, if you'd rather we got ALL of your support, just give us a call or email!
