Baby Book Swop has been created by parents who have a passion for reading to their children. The intention of Baby Book Swop is to enable fellow book enthusiasts to have one place to buy and sell all their children’s books.
Our website enables you to buy a wide selection of new and used children’s books but also to sell your books back to us in exchange for cash or a voucher towards more books. All our books are in great condition and each one is carefully checked for faults and damage. Any books that do not meet our high standards are recycled responsibly.
We set up Baby Book Swop in 2015 after our first born who was then around 6 months old showed a great interest in books. We don’t have access to a local library without a long drive to a small village library with limited choices and couldn’t justify the cost of new books. We tried to find a website like ours where we could swop our unwanted baby books in exchange for different ones but it didn’t exist. Not long after we set up we were asked by customers if we could sell books for their older children and so our collection of books grew and grew and in February of 2017 it outgrew our house so we got ourselves a business unit and it became my full time job. We now have a unit on a business park with a stock room, play room for our children and a shop for customers to come and look at our lovely collection of books.
We try and make the shop as fun and practical as possible. Everything is childproof so you can relax knowing that your children can investigate our toy box whilst you take the time to carefully choose which books you’d like. We also offer free drinks to customers and we’re breast feeding friendly.
We run regular parent and baby classes within the shop including story time, coffee morning, first aid classes, arts and craft sessions and baby massage. Details of all of these can be found on our local page, Facebook.com/BabyBookSwopShop
