Independent Bookshop Week 2017


We’re celebrating Independent Bookshop Week at our Wigtown Bookshop between 24th June and 1st July. As members of the Booksellers Association we’re delighted to be taking part. We have several great competitions with fab prizes that will be running on our facebook page all week. We’ve also got a fun Where’s Wally Competition with the help of other members of the Wigtown business community. Just find  hidden Wallys in the town’s shops and cafes and claim a card, when you’ve found him, find five and present them at Curly Tale Books to be given a great Where’s Wally poster, find eight and you’ll also be entered into a prize draw with a fab first prize of a tote bag with two Where’s Wally books. The draw will be made on Saturday 1st July.
