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…

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

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
