York Book Fair - Collectable bookselling at its finest and we've tickets to give away!

Yes indeed - never ever let it be said that booksellers aren't kind and generous people - 
especially we here at the Unicorn Tree!  
We have 4 complimentary tickets to the York Book Fair to give away - each ticket admits two people and there is even a free shuttlebus from the railway station to the event! Amazing!

So what is the Book Fair?
From modest beginning with just 20 exhibitors at the White Swan Inn in York in 1974, the York Book Fair has grown into the largest, and many say friendliest, rare, antiquarian & out-of-print book fair in the U.K.. Held over two days, 215 of this country's leading booksellers offer for sale a breathtaking diversity of books, as well as maps & prints, ranging in price from just a few pounds up to tens of thousands of pounds. This year we also welcome a number of dealers from overseas.
You will find books over 500 years old, to review copies of recently published works, and everything in between. The venue is very easy to reach, there is unlimited free parking, and also a free shuttle bus from the Railway Station to the Fair every 20 minutes.
Who Will Enjoy It?
Anyone interested in books and reading. This is not just a Fair for dealers, but is open to everyone young and old, and a great place to start collecting. With over 100,000 books for sale, where else can you look at, touch, enjoy, and even purchase so many rarities under one roof. If you are already a collector then it is a great opportunity to meet new dealers in your area, and if you aren't already a collector it's one of the best places to be inspired to become one!

All in all it is a great day out for any book lover, regardless of whether you collect or not, and it's not just books, there are also maps and other ephemera too - it's lovely and I only wish I was going!

So if you want one of these complimentary tickets just go to our facebook page - Unicorn Tree Books - like it if you haven't already and write on the wall to tell us you want a ticket 
- the first four to do so get the tickets! it's just that easy :-)

So there we go that’s the bookshop boss being generous yet again – so I reckon that it must now be time for a hazlenut flavoured coffee I think. 
Anyway don't forget to come in, browse and, we hope, stock up soon, we also have some very good books and collectable things lurking here in Unicorn Tree Books & Crafts too remember and we really look forward to seeing you, recieving an email from you, chatting on the phone (01522 525557) with you or even facebooking or twittering with you!
