WELCOME TO MAINSTREET

Based in the Scottish Borders village of St Boswells, The Mainstreet Trading Company is a destination in itself. Husband and wife team, Rosamund and Bill de la Hey, renovated the former auction house in 2008 to create a light and airy space filled with books and the smell of coffee. In 2012, they went on to create Mainstreet Deli & Home in a beautiful barn behind the main shop.

THE GIVING TREE

Each year we set up a Giving Tree in our bookshop, providing the opportunity for our customers to give a book as a Christmas Gift for children who may not have many books on their shelves at home.

This year we are working with our local foodbanks to provide books for the children who use their services. We hope that each child who receieves a food parcel from these Food Banks will also receive a gift-wrapped, age-appropraite books, thanks to the generosity of our community.

WHAT’S ON AT MAINSTREET

I can not thank you enough for all the trouble you went to for Flora. She was utterly over the moon… I don’t think I shall ever forget it, the sheer joy and excitement in her eyes! Thank you for a very special memory!
