Little Acorns Bookstore is the North-west of Ireland’s largest Independent Bookstore with 45K plus books in stock, both new and used, of all genres and suitable for all ages. Specialist sections include local books (most author-signed), Irish history and politics, English literature and a dedicated children's book area (with resident guard dog mascot cuddly toy Scooby Doo that the local kids adore ). Also stock cards, gifts, local arts and crafts, retro toys and literary accessories.
Plans to open Ireland's only (and first!) Typewriter Museum, with over 125 typewriters on display, are scheduled for late 2022-2023.
Home to two LegenDerry old school teacher chairs - The Writers' Chair and The Theatre & Media Chair - boasting over 350 plus signatures from such luminaries as authors, artists, musicians, actors, media personalities, 'creative politicians' and many more.
The walk-in shop is open every Monday to Saturday from 10am - 6pm.
Accepts cash and card payments (chocolate & flowers!), in shop and online, plus can post out orders internationally. One-person business. Established in March 2011.
"I started out with just a hundred books at a weekend market and nine years later, five shop moves, (and two house moves!) and with lots of genuinely wonderful local encouragement, support, friendship, fun, coffee plus hard work - I'm living the dream!"
