Welcome to Skylark online. Here you can check on of our upcoming events and offers, make enquiries, or place an order via our contact page. Our shop is located in The Needlemakers, a converted Victorian factory in the heart of historic Lewes, and we are known both as an independent bookseller and as an eclectic vendor of locally made and fairly traided crafts, prints, cards, music and films.
NEW! If you are in a local BOOK GROUP, please spread the word that Skylark (in the Needlemakers) is very happy to offer 10% OFF the rrp on any of your group's book choices. Most titles can be ordered in within a day or two. Incidentally, I'd highly recommend Nathan Filer's poignant, at times sharply funny portrayal of a young man's journey through mental illness and grief The Shock of the Fall, Jim Crace's dark evocation of enclosure, class war and witchcraft Harvest (new fiction) or Anna Funder's Stasiland (true tales from pre-wall fall Berlin)!
We are delighted to announce that we are now a stockist of the wide-ranging ecoliterature magazine EARTHLINES, based on the Isle of Lewis. Issue 3 on the shelves now, includes Sara Maitland on forests, John Lane on coyotes, and the poetry of Yang Jian. www.earthlines.org.uk.
We also sell music....Listen (via Spotify) to what we have been playing and selling in the shop over the last few weeks HERE
