Meet the team
We opened our doors December 2007, after people asking “why don’t you make the books available for everyone to see”. The foundation and experience at Bodhi Books and Gifts comes via Windhorse Books which has distributed books to bookshops, Buddhist groups and individuals since 1994.
Where we've come from:
Working with a team of volunteers we combined resourcefulness, good will and a great deal of energy to create our first shop in Enmore Road.
Where we've been:
After two years we found ourselves looking for a new premises. We felt confident that our customers were growing in number and becoming loyal and supportive of the philosophy of our endeavour.
Where we are now:
Today, our shop in King Street, Newtown continues to provide the tranquil oasis and friendly service upon which we have built our reputation. Our range is always evolving with new titles and gifts coming in weekly. We have made many friends through our street presence and are happy to say that our move from a warehouse in the back streets of Newtown to the main drag has been not just a step but a leap forward in providing customers with a positive and meaningful buying experience.
