The CARPET
Second Hand Three Quid Book Shop

Finding another way for people to pay.

Apparently cash is on the way out. That lovely papery-round-metal stuff just isn't good enough anymore. So we here at CARPET are finding another way.

When you show up to any of our events you can pay with a book! It's got to be a poetry boo (or at least a bit poetical) that's dog eared, well thumbed, brand new, or neatly wrapped.

We take them books, wrap them in paper and add them to our mystery book shelves. Then, when people who can afford it want to take a punt on a new bit of random poeticals, they can buy a book for £3.

The best bit is, each book comes with a CARPET Spoken Word seed-card. This card can be planted almost anywhere and the plan is that the flowers sprout and make the whole thing carbon-neutral baby!

Just one tiny small way we're attempting to make things better in the future.
