You've found Quiddity - a quaint and quirky online book and record store for my specific interests, which I sincerely hope will interest you too. It's an odd mix, but here you will find collective nouns, Cornwall's Queen of Song, Brenda Wootton, and a beautiful range of antiquarian books!
I'm thrilled to announce the launch of a new CD - 'Brenda at Buryan' - read all about it (together with all the lyrics) on the link on the top bar, or buy under 'Brenda Wootton/Albums/Brenda at Buryan CD' menu at the left...
Brenda Wootton, my mother, was a well-known and much-loved Cornish singer who took her joy of singing and love of Cornwall around the world in the 1970s and 80s - I've started with a book of her poems and a postcard, but look out for some rare copies of her vinyl albums, posters etc, which will be appearing soon, for aficionados.
Gallimaufry is my brand new opus on collective nouns - those endearing little phrases of which people seem so keen to compile lists - and I am no exception. I started compiling a list many years ago, and as it began to reach absurd proportions, I realised (or rather, hoped) that others might share my obsession. Now available to order!!
Delighted to see you here - and please do offer any suggestions, or add (polite) comments as you see fit.
Any questions - ask away.
PS: I also have an Etsy shop called 'Keepsies', on which I sell all manner of fabulous antique goodies - from Victorian through Art Deco to Mid Century Modern and Retro 1950s, ceramics, glassware, metalware and plastics. Take a look on my Bibliophilia page, or check the shop out here...
