Summer SALE Madness!

It's nearly August, 
the kids are on hols,
next week the beach arrives in Lincoln's City Square again right beside us,
And as from tomorrow pm Minion Conscripts have been called into action 
and Yay Me i'm away to the Lake District for 4 days camping and walking!!

So today to celebrate my summer hol mood, 
the Summer Sale has rolled out! 
All books, 
YES ALL BOOKS! are on BUY 12 & PAY FOR 10 
- any choice, mix and match, new & old! 
and All other 
It's what's in stock on offer folks, the choices are yours and it's while stocks last only 
- we don't think some items will be there long in some cases and we can't guarantee that items will be back in stock before the Summer Madness ends at the end of August 
- so be quick and get in here because I'm not likely to ever be this generous again because the only things not in the sale are the gifts and candles!
If the sun was shining I would think I'd got sunstroke with this one! 
So there we go that's the bookshop boss done being silly and summery for now - time for a mint syrup flavoured coffee I think -  that syrup makes me think of Kendal Mint Cake, hmm maybe I'll bring minion conscripts some back and some for you lovely customers too!
So anyway come in, browse and, we hope, stock up soon (you'll be mad if you don't with this offer!) - we'll 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!

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!
