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!

Aboriginal History & Art Exhibition

The latest incarnation of The Gallery Next Door is providing the public with a display of Aboriginal History & Art Books.

Including such rarities as an 1840 first edition of Teichelmann (sic) & Schurmann’s Outlines of a Grammar, Vocabulary & Phraseology, Of The Aboriginal Language Of South Australia;¬†The Native Tribes of South Australia and Tindale’s Aboriginal Tribes of Australia, this is an exhibition of unquestionable significance.

There are also a number of general interest books about Art and the Dreamtime, plus some fiction and kids books from Indigenous authors.
