Mrs Middleton's Shop
Isle of Wight PO40 9QF
OPEN DAILY 10-4.30
Come and visit our little shop for a warm welcome. We sell books (old and new), gifts, cards, coffee and cake.
Situated in Freshwater Village opposite the Council Car Park, we are easily accessible, and keep regular shop hours.
The concept of the shop- is primarily a bookshop- one that invites browsing, reading the books (in a comfy arm-chair) and has gifts and toys that have a bookish affinity.
In the rear of the shop (The Parlour) we have a kitchen table and chairs, and serve 'Jabberwocky' Coffee- a freshly roasted blend of beans, and The Chocolate Apothecary of Ryde supply us regularly with a delicious Tiffin to accompany your coffee.
Mrs Middleton's Shop product (as seen on this web-site) sits aside brands such as Wild and Wolf, Disaster Designs and a current focus on Women Local Artists, Authors and Makers- Zoe Sadler, Jan Toms and Stephanie Mackrill amongst their number.
If we don't stock a particular book that you are seeking- we will do our best to find out if another Island Bookshop has it, or search elsewhere for you. Just ask.
From the Spring we shall also be holding regular book-signing events, and talks.
Outside- our Community Chest Board brings you news of what's going on in Freshwater. So- if you live here, or are visiting and want some ideas of what to do, something to read, a card or a gift- come in and see us- you are very welcome!
