Bookshop‎ > ‎


Though our shop is small, we take pride in having a wide selection; something for anyone who loves to read.

Our largest sets are fiction (both paperback and hardcover), and large-format art, architecture, and photography books. Another very popular section is our Local Favourites, where we feature works by the exceptionally talented good people of New Brunswick and the rest of the Maritimes.

We've been described by happy customers as "diversely curated," "eclectic," and even "amazing." We modestly accept such praise, and hope you'll feel the same way on your visit.
