Bijou Books is run by a mother and daughter who love nothing more than a good book; different genres, but enjoying a page turner is a shared passion. So one day we decided to turn our hobby into a business.

Bijou Books came to being as my mother runs an antiques business with my father - Bijou Antiques - as we all love the 'something old' side of things.


After a few visits to Hay on Wye - it is the book lovers Mecca - and an investment or two into some books, we decided to make the leap and open a bookshop based at the Pumping Station on Penarth Road in Cardiff.  

While every bookshelf needs its modern books and tomes, there is something about an antique or vintage book that just makes it that extra bit special. 

We have been selling books for a little while now and our website is all about sharing more of our books with the wider world. 

We hope you enjoy browsing our website and the books we have on offer. We try to cater to everyone's taste and add books all the time. 

Happy reading!

Kay and Francesca
