Today, I went for a walk in town to go to the Post Office and Bank.
I decided I would stop for a visit in a wee bookshop, The Rutland Bookshop, near the bank.
It was lovely to meet and chat with the owner and bookseller, Mrs. Baines, who prefers to be called, "Maurie" rather than her given name, "Maureen"
The shop is quintessentially English. Gorgeous old brick architecture in the narrowest of dimensions, it is small, but perfectly formed.
Tiny and filled to the brim with books of all types, eras, and design.
The small shop is absolutely a book-lover's dream come true!
There are three floors filled with books and a lovely shop owner to help you with your discoveries, too.
I commented to Maurie that all she needed was a cat or a Terrier dog to make the English look complete!
If you are out and about for a day trip or heading in this direction for a holiday, why not stop to explore in The Rutland Bookshop? You never know what you may find!
