MGE Shops is the trading name of London's best and only chain of second hand shops. Established in 1967, our signs display BUY SELL TRADE and that's exactly what we do. We trade in a wide range of goods including records, CDs, clothes, homeware, jewellery, books and comics.
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!
