About Us

The Frog and Flamingo was hatched in 2017. The bookshop aims to reunite fans with old favourites; to help collectors find sought after prizes; and to introduce book lovers with new adventures. We are a champion for the old, the obsolete, the overlooked and the out of print. We specialise in children’s books, but have all kinds of everything.

A secondhand book is a treasure. It may be very old. It may be hard to find. Or it may just be special to you. But they all carry with them the history and enjoyment of their previous owners. All our books are therefore treated with respect, accurately described and come carefully wrapped.

One day we will open an actual shop, where you can peruse our lovely stock in person with a cuppa. But in the meantime, you can always make your own cuppa, have a browse and check out the blog, where we dip into our stock to pull out some gems you might have missed, some old favourites, and generally wax lyrical about the joys of the obscure and the pre-read.
