In one of his 1980’s Driff’s Guides the infamous, almost mythical bookshop reviewer Driffield described the original Book and Comic Exchange shop as having the “aura of somewhere out of a Jim Thompson novel”.
That was our old shop, a dingy cave above a musical instrument shop on Notting Hill Gate’s main drag.
Since then we have moved to bigger and brighter premises in two shops on Pembridge Road.
Here you'll find everything from original Crowley pamphlets to 1st edition Steinbecks and Penthouse classics!
We are well renowned as being one of the best sources of both bargain goods and hard to find items.
We constantly buy new stock, and the prices of most items we have are reduced periodically.
One of the longest running chains of second-hand shops in the UK, Music and Goods Exchange epitomises counter-culture aesthetic.
Our stock includes a vast selection of, amongst other things, vinyl (including very rare records), CDs, contemporary designer and vintage clothing and DVDs. So you may like to visit us regularly as you might find something you really want that's much cheaper than anywhere else!
