Love Your Bookshop Day is about celebrating bookshops,
bookselling and the culture of books, reading and writing.
So whether you love us for our amazing staff and their awesome advice and friendly service,
our carefully curated range of gorgeous books,
our great events,
or just simply that wonderful sight and smell
when you step through the door,
we’d love to see you on
Saturday 10 August
to help us celebrate!!
Here’s some of the great stuff we’ve got planned for the day:
We know so many of you love our wonderful front window displays, now here’s a chance to ‘win the window’! – thanks to the support of our wonderful publishers, we’ll have a window full of amazing books that you could win, simply by making a purchase of $50 or more in store on Saturday 10 August! Ask staff for details on how to enter.
Children’s Illustrator Extraordinaire, James Hart, will be visiting between 11am and 1pm, drawing pictures on request! Come on down for your very own personalised piece of art!!
We’ll be donating 10% of sales for the day to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation to support the fantastic work they do. You can find out more about the ILF here.
Get creative and sign our graffiti wall – add in your favourite book titles, have a go at illustrating your favourite book character or just tell us what you love most about Farrells!
Sausage Sizzle from 11am-1pm, thanks to the Rotary Club of Mornington – proceeds also to the ILF.
Face Painting for the kids! From 11am-1pm we’ll have free face painting for all our youngest bookshop lovers.
Colouring in Competition! For kids up to age 12, collect a copy of the picture in store or print a copy off here. Entries should be returned by 5pm Wednesday 14 August, with the winners announced and prizes awarded at our Children’s Book Week celebration on Saturday 17 August at 3pm.
Lucky book dip! Make a purchase and then take your chances with our lucky dip – you could score an advanced reading copy of a forthcoming book or perhaps something that might have taken a knock or two but is still just as wonderful on the inside.
Double Loyalty Points! – for one day only, if you’re a member of our Friends of Farrells (FOF) Loyalty Program, you’ll earn double points for any eligible transaction (usual FOF rules apply). Ask in store if you’d like to hear more about the Friends of Farrells Program – perhaps sign up on the day!
