Kim's Bookshops story
Kim's Bookshop was started in 1971 in Worthing by Kim Francombe an avid book collector whose vast collection started taking over her house. Outgrowing her front room, she opened a small shop in West Buildings, Worthing with a stock of 250 books. This shop became a well-known glory hole of interesting volumes and was soon recognised for the enthusiasm and knowledge of Kim and her eldest daughter Camilla.
