Who we are

Established by experienced book purveyors Kate Treloar & Nick Patrick, Adelaide’s Pop-up Bookshop breaks all the rules. We see ourselves as crusaders for the wonderful bookshops Adelaide has lost and realised we couldn’t replicate. Instead, we’ve established a new style with a variety of bookshops Adelaide can get excited about. Adelaide’s Pop-up Bookshop is not traditional – we may appear in a shopfront or the street, in a cafe or a market – but we love books and we love Adelaide. Our books are never far away… you just have to find us. It’s kind of like an exclusive club for discerning readers.
