Treadwell's founder and guiding spirit is Christina Oakley Harrington, who opened its doors on May Day 2003. It is a collective of friends and colleagues of common purpose. From the first day, friends have donated expertise, resources, old furniture and valuable advice.
When you come into our shop you'll meet one of our booksellers. Our gang include a hedge witch with a passion for literature; an anthropology graduate with a love of fine art; a theatre stage manager; an editor; and so many more. All avid readers of philosophy, literature, and psychology. Step inside and join the conversation.
Dear Friend of Treadwell’s,
It is with a heavy heart that we have had to suspend our much-loved event series until at least the 16th of April. We shall continue to update this as more advice is given.
We have also decided to suspend our tarot service.
Everyone affected should have received an email directly from us and we are in the midst of managing full refunds for everyone.
This is a hard time for all of us, and our thoughts are with those who are most vulnerable.
We have been touched by the many messages of support and enquires about how best to help a small independent business during this period.
If you do wish to help Treadwell's then we encourage you to let us serve you in the best way we can, by providing you with all the very best books.
Our online shop is still running and orders are going out so do have a browse - we continue to remain stocked with old favourites, new releases, tarot cards and rare books.
Thank you for your support during this trying time.
Christina, Will, Esther, Coco, Max and all the gang.
