Our Ethos

The Barrow might not be a proper brick and mortar bookshop (yet!), but we believe in selling a curated selection of good literary fiction and non-fiction. Each book has to earn its place with the limited physical space. We like to think of ourselves as Bibliotherapists; inspiring book lovers with good books and recommendations and providing the right book for the right person at the right time. A Barrow bookmark in a hand-stamped waxed paper bag or a good-looking cotton bag accompanies purchases. It is all part of being passionate booksellers and providing a great experience for book lovers.
