Bookshop News June 2020

I noticed this morning that I am now on my 88th day streak learning Spanish on Duolingo. I started it sometime around the beginning of the lockdown, which means we've all been cooped up for at least 88 days now. Wow. Despite the challenges of home schooling, bored children, and changeable weather, The Frog and Flamingo toils on, bringing you great books to keep you reading and learning in these troubled times. I am working hard on my next load of books to be uploaded to the website - hopefully there will be some fresh stock up over the next...

Stockport Vintage Village

Stockport Vintage Village

The Frog and Flamingo ventured out into the 'real' world last weekend for our first ever fair! We attended the Vintage Village in Stockport Market Hall and felt quite honoured to be surrounded by such an amazing array of vintage clothing, furniture, toys and homeware. Could have easily spent a fortune!  The sun was out, and there was a food and drink festival going on outside, and we met some lovely traders and customers. We'll definitely be going back, and we're also looking at some other venues... watch this space!
