An Aladdin’s cave of toys and games for all ages!
Imagine is owned and operated by Maggie, who jumped at the chance to take over at the end of 2018 and carry on the Imagine legacy. This fantastic quirky style shop in an old weavers cottage is certainly worth a visit, especially as we gear towards the winter months, but whilst we are “locked down” you can visit virtually!
Imagine sells a large range of toys and games for children of all ages, specialising in creative, educational and scientific toys.
However there are plenty of pocket money toys, trading cards and a wide range of practical jokes. New toys hit the shelves nearly every week, and many can be tried before purchase.
Brands stocked include Lego, Playmobil, Janod, Siku, Lanka Kade and Sylvanian Families as well as Bigjigs, AquaPlay, Great Gizmos and many more.
There really isn’t anything you won’t find.
Maggie at Imagine has been desperately adding a lot of her stock onto the app link below for lockdown, so this will give you a great idea of what she has available

A family owned bookshop….
When Read. opened its doors in early 2019, Holmfirth gained a wonderful, independent bookstore which has been enjoyed not only by the local community, but also by Holmfirth’s many visitors, some of whom have become customers from a distance.
Louise and James Ashmore, who are ably supported by a wonderful team of staff with vast knowledge across a huge range of books, own this gem of a family bookstore. Books in all categories and genres are carefully chosen, from award-winning
literary fiction to graphic novels and film titles, to a selection of books about the natural world, biographies and even books or maps for the many cyclists, which pass through Holmfirth.
Read. is not like many other bookshops, they are now an integral part of the community, working with schools, teachers and young people and hosting events (when allowed!)
Once again, undeterred by the lockdown earlier this year, once again Read. will take to the road delivering books across the community. Have a look in the photos for details on the best ways to order from Read. but if you want to browse through their online catalogue for inspiration this can also be found on the link below.
