*** UPDATED BELOW ***

Strolling/sliding/skiing along Argyle Street on the way home last night, I noticed one of the empty shops has been taken up with a shoddy poster/canvas store, with a bargain books unit upstairs. Directly opposite River Island.

**************


most of them are hardbacks and have an original cover price of over 15 each. Note for any thinking of popping down at lunchtime, they only take cash sales.

Strolling/sliding/skiing along Argyle Street on the way home last night, I noticed one of the empty shops has been taken up with a shoddy poster/canvas store, with a bargain books unit upstairs. Directly opposite River Island.

Decided to have a wee look around and found the following hardbacks, all for 2 a go.

they had plenty of stock when I was in, so hopefully there will be still be plenty for you.

As I mentioned before, the cover cost of each is in excess of 15.


if any of you are as unlucky to have earl haigs as relatives, they have some of their drivel for 2 as well. Jimmy Johnstone & Bertie Auld. Given that neither is/was the most articulate, I think it's fair to assume they are a series of handprints or crayon scrawls.

Couldn't be that much of bargain shop if it was 50% dearer than the shop in town. :D

I enjoyed the Gordon Smith one, what came out of it is that he wasn't shy about his own ability, and not so much on the park as off it.

Could do with an extar chapter if he didn't sign a confidentiality with the SFA

Wouldn`t have thought they would have the bargain bookshop cum clothing shop upstairs from a canvas/ coasters store in Lakeside Thurrock...

So I wouldn`t worry to much about it mate...

Popped in here today to pick up the books for Marston bear and this shop is a must for Bears -

As well as the books Adamski mentioned there is quite a few dvds (Mols, Ricksen and Prso) and other Football books worth a read

I managed to pick up a few Xmas gifts as there is a few Scottish National side books also

Great wee shop and thanks to Adamski for sharing - much appreciated bud :cool: (They also mentioned they are due to get in some more Rangers books soon, so I'll be keeping an eye on this wee place)
