Traditional book shop located within modern Sydney CBD. Upstairs, you will find more books and other collectible gems like Funko Pop and novelty items.
Thanks for taking the time to give us a nod Joel. Tip of the hat to you Sir.
Great shop with old fashioned customer service, it's saying a lot that this place is still running in the day and age of e-books ( something I can't get used to). I wanted to find Indonesian language books to brush up on my school girl Indonesian and they have a very well stocked foreign language section. Good prices and they will order something in if required.
Amazing little gem in the hearth of Sydney. You can find each and every book you're looking for at this bookshop. I was looking for a very rare and old cook book a few years ago and never managed to find it. Then one afternoon while searching for a good novel I stumbled upon that cook book and was delighted to see it was in perfect condition and seemed to be fairly priced. The lady was very helpful and friendly. She even offered to remove the book from the shelves until I had the money ready. Simply the best!
