What guilty pleasure shop would we be if we didn’t have books? In books, we can find education, knowledge, wisdom, entertainment, happiness, and motivation. As Stephen King said ”Books are uniquely portable magic”, and here in Abode, we are aware of that fact, so you can always find some of these readers’ pleasure in our store.
Check out this season’s collection available in our Bundoran store and our flagship home furniture store Stockhouse Interiors in Donegal Town!
