Mercat Bookshop


An important update from the Mercat Bookshop (29/11/2021):

It is with regret that we have made the decision to temporarily close the bookshop from Monday, November 29th until further notice.

This is due to the social care services we offer, the vulnerability of our service users and to keep our staff and volunteers safe.

We will of course provide further updates on the bookshop's opening hours in due course. In the meantime, we thank you for your understanding and incredible continued support.

VSA's Mercat Bookshop, situated on Castlegate, provides the North East with access to a wide range of second hand books, vinyls, CDs and DVDs at an affordable price.

Our bookshop is run almost entirely by volunteers who love giving up their time to provide the local community with new and old books, DVDs and CDs.

All of the items in our bookshop are donated by members of the public and all the proceeds go directly to our services supporting some of the most vulnerable people across the North East.

The Mercat Bookshop has raised £150K over the last five years.
