Highly profitable and unique opportunity
Stationery, books and selected antiques, viewing very strongly recommended
The business was established 13 years ago and purchased by our client about ten years ago. This unique and very rare business opportunity offers its customers a wide range of stationery, including pens, paper and folders, wedding and personal stationery, an extensive range of unique books, first editions and rare prints. The range of items for sale and their uniqueness gives the business healthy profit margins.
Located at the very heart of the city centre, the area is a hive of activity seven days a week with a constant level of foot fall. The business trades over two storeys of an historical property, but also has a secondary storage located close by.
A walk down the 600-year-old street will take you past three colleges and a row of some of the oldest and best-respected shops in town. Inside, amid the smell of leather and the sound of Italian opera, you will find an Aladdin’s Cave of hand-stitched leather-bound journals, dip pens, quills, Murano glass pens, inks, sealing wax, prints and Oxfordshire’s largest assortment of Venetian masks.
In addition to the range of luxurious writing paper, inks and pens, the business offers a personal stationery service which enables the customers to have their details printed or engraved on a range of mould made and handmade paper, cards and envelopes.
The products are handpicked from small businesses primarily in Britain and Italy and the owners are proud of the part which is played in ensuring that the old-fashioned values of craftsmanship and attention to detail continue to have a place in the 21st century.
A greatly unique and highly profitable business. A rare opportunity not to be missed.
