Is the crush of Black Friday Just not your thing? Civilized Saturday might be just the quiet holiday you need in your life.
Civilized Saturday is the answer to the mad, mad dash that is Black Friday. If Thoughts of elbowing your way through throngs of rabid shoppers and fighting tooth-and-nail for the last marked-down towel make you shudder, fear not! Booksellers are here to treat you to an afternoon of quiet time.
Books, tea, crumpets, and the occassional dancing, signing, and book-balancing contest — that’s what Civilized Saturday is all about.

Polite and witty conversation goes best with this.
This Saturday join our search for Santa in West Dulwich, shop whilst sipping winter Pimms & eating homemade cake all for #CivilisedSaturday

As does invigorating discussion about your favorite books.
#CivilisedSaturday tomorrow! Come and browse the shop with a glass of prosecco in hand. Sit and read. Enjoy good books…

Civilized Saturday is the pleasant experience to soothe one’s soul as the antidote to the holiday’s tyrannous onslaught of exhaustion and expectations.
