Not Closing, Just Changing

We’ve spent the last 12 years refining a bookshop EXPERIENCE we believe is unlike any other. Unfortunately, in the space of a few days, our world has been turned upside-down, like it has for most of you as well. We are now prohibited from providing an experience and, to be honest, our business model didn’t factor in pandemics.

HOWEVER… our particular industry has been subjected to various degrees of disruption throughout our career so we’re already adapting by creating a bookshop SERVICE we believe is unlike any other!

Head over to the Your Pick page for all the details – let’s not allow a little virus to get in the way of a good story…

Sale Room OPEN!

Have you checked out our SALE ROOM yet?

We’re constantly refining and shaking things up in-store, which means some books have their prices slashed & move next door… PLUS, we always have more stock than we can squeeze in so there are BARGAINS galore with bookcases FULL of books at old-school op-shop prices.
So come visit us in Adelaide’s iconic CENTRAL MARKET for all your booky needs – boutique or bonanza. xoxo N&K

2019 Book Sale

Thurs 10th to Sat 12th of January

From 9am at our Central Market store (formerly The Gallery Next Door annex)

Over 1000 books from a single-owner collection – all books are priced to sell so this is not one to miss

With a predominance of religion, history (with much South Australiana) and literature, but with a miscellany of other curiosities, there are plenty of bargains to be had!

And if that’s not enough, any books remaining on Saturday will be available for HALF-PRICE! That’s 50% of the already low sale price!

BLOOMSDAY 2018

June 16 – a date etched in literary history as recorded by James Joyce in his epic Ulysses. June 16, 1904, was the setting for Leopold Bloom’s somewhat ordinary adventure through the streets of Dublin and June 16, 2018, is the setting for live readings from the extraordinary novel in Adelaide’s Central Market.

Beginning at 10am, and with further readings at 11am, 12pm & 1pm, marketgoers will be presented with tasty morsels of a literary feast in an experience sure to be remembered. Come one, come all and, as Molly Bloom left us with these immortal words: and yes I said yes I will Yes

Books @ The Bay

We’ve spent our entire bookselling career bucking trends. And now, with bookstores closing universally, we couldn’t be more excited to announce the opening of a second outlet! Our new home will be 85 Jetty Rd, Glenelg – right in the middle of the historic beachside suburb’s retail strip (opposite tram stop 16 and the new cinema complex, if you’d like directions).

We’re retro-fitting a former frozen yoghurt store and, at this stage, it will be a Summer Pop-up running from December 1, 2017 to February 28, 2018… but if it works we’d love to make it longer-term.

And to set a few minds at rest, yes – we’ll still be in our Central Market HQ, so now you’ve got two go-to book destinations!
