The Original Children's Bookshop Christchurch closes its doors today. Hurry there now...

Do you live in Christchurch?
If so you will know the Original Children’s Bookshop in Blenheim Square.  It’s a shop I have always made a point of visiting each time I have been in Christchurch both in Victoria Street and in Blenheim Square  (post earthquake) .
After 37 years of trading this unique and amazing bookshop will almost definitely be closing down in just a few short hours -  yes, and on NZ Bookshop Day 29th October too after their all day Tiger Who Came to Tea Party.  (See also yesterday’s post for another Tiger Who Came to Tea Party – in Wellington at the Children’s Bookshop, Kilbirnie!)
It seems half of Christchurch will be visiting to pay their respects but please join them. Take a cupcake, a pot plant, a bag of sweeties and above all BUY A BOOK (or several books)
