Bookmark has been Spalding’s much loved independent book shop for over 25 years.

Under the guardianship of Christine Hanson, the shop moved to its current site in June 1998.

Its reputation grew, attracting customers from neighbouring counties and welcoming a growing number of authors for regular singings, talks and events.

In 2001 Bookmark was winner of the Independent Bookshop of the Year, and in 2007 and 2008 it was a regional winner.

In June 2016 Christine retired, selling Bookmark to Jason and Darren Sutton, owners of local business Charmed Interiors.

Alongside the café, gifts and toys Bookmark will continue to hold monthly reading groups and regular author talks and book signings.

More than just a book shop…. gifts, toys & a coffee house too!
