Limited Edition 25 year Celebration Package

*** Sorry, the limited edition celebration packages are now sold out (gone like hotcakes!) ***

To celebrate the fact that it’s 25 years today since we opened the Uppsala shop we have produced a limited edition 25th Anniversary Celebration Package for you lovely people!

It contains a very pretty Anniversary Mug (only 100 made!), a Penguin Black Classic (a different one in each package!) – stamped with the bookshop stamp and hand dated, a bag of our English Bookshop Blend tea (made by our friends at Tehörnan Uppsala and hand decorated for the occasion by them!), a souvenir postcard with our friend Jonas Bok & Bild's marvellous artwork of our bookshop corner – plus a celebration card numbered from 1 to 100.

We only have the 100 Celebration Packages and we only turn 25 once – so make sure you get yours! Buy it at the bookshop in Uppsala, or order yours on the link below for pick-up or have it sent to you. (We’re doing all we can to avoid crowding and to keep everyone safe and comfortable.) They’re priced at 250:- each and are for bookshop lovers only. You know who you are. :-)
