SECOND HAND & COLLECTIVE BOOKS – READING ROOM
A new antiquarian/secondhand bookshop-bazaar is launched in Patras. Despite the fact that antiquarian and secondhand bookshops are already an institution and regarded in esteem in other countries, in the Greek market this is not the case, since they tend to be unappreciated in terms of quality and importance. And although in the exterior all major collectors prefer to turn to them in order to enrich their collections, here, in Greece, we are far from sharing this point of view.
It is our firm belief, however, that this trend could be successfully introduced and established in the Greek audience, also, and this is why we created the “BookStopCafé”: The idea originated in our personal quest through the paths of History, Culture and The Arts, which form our cultural inheritance and leave traces as the time goes by.
