Talisman Books is an exceptionally well stocked bookshop with sections covering all categories.
Privately owned, with a great deal of owner commitment, the shop aims to cater for its customers and undertakes to supply any book in print - sometimes in only one day. Customer orders make up a large part of its turnover.
On the shelves of the shop browsers will find a continually changing range of up-to-date fiction, the classics, poetry, histories, sports, craft and cookery books etc, as well as a whole section devoted to children's books. A popular area of the shop, especially with visitors, is the comprehensive selection of books about the Borders and about Scotland in general. Cards, notebooks and wrapping paper are also sold.
Enquiries and orders are welcomed. Open six days a week. Telephone and fax 01896 82 2196.
