Bye Bye Barefoot

The wonderful Storytellers Cafe at Barefoot Books in Oxford is closing for good just before Christmas.  Barefoot plan on sticking to publishing childrens books and no longer want to operate a cafe for children and their parents.  This means they are selling a complete cafe's worth of kit -

The kitchen equipment is only a few months old as someone reversed their Mercedes into the kitchen, narrowly avoiding the chefs and resulting in a new kitchen fit out!  Let them know if interested and no, we are not on commission.  Sad that a great childrens cafe is closing - see it or buy it!
