Speaker: Rosamund de la Hey
After 15 years in publishing (most of it with Bloomsbury
Children's Books), Rosamund opened The Mainstreet Trading Company
(Books, Cafe & Gift) with her husband Bill in June 2008.
Based in the Scottish Borders, the shop has built a loyal customer
base and a lively events programme, winning various awards
including Independent Bookshop of the Year in 2012. Later
that year, they expanded to create Mainstreet Deli & Home,
winning UK Deli of the Year in 2014.
