I kept meaning to go in…… a eulogy for another favourite place

My favourite place to ‘be’. The Art House Southampton. Consider supporting the arts and become a patron. I only started writing poetry because of this place 🙂

The Art House

We hear this phrase a lot when we go out and folks realise where we’re from.

‘Oh The Art House!  I’ve heard of that – I keep meaning to come in’

A proper old school bookshop - becoming rarer by the minute.A proper old school bookshop – becoming rarer by the minute.

Bik and I joke that, if we had a quid for every time we heard this, we’d be able to fund this place without having to bake so many cakes!

But today I said it myself, about a favourite place of mine, only now it’s too late.

I’ve just seen the news that Peter Rhodes Bookshop in Portswood is to close.

They are having a closing down sale and need your support – see the Facebook event here for details.

(Please note, it’s the physical bookshop which is closing, Peter Rhodes books will continue to trade online – but you can’t have a coffee in an online shop…
