Welcome!

Our meticulously-curated stock of 20,000 antiquarian, used, and out-of-print books and our friendly and welcoming atmosphere set us apart from many bookstores. We have a long-established reputation of  easygoing professionalism, and maintain an eclectic, fresh collection including everything from first editions, fine bindings and antiquarian books, to Indigenous studies, literature, art, and classics, with new acquisitions daily.

We are centrally located in the heart of downtown, in a bright space with lofty ceilings and towering windows which look out onto one of Winnipeg’s busiest pedestrian thoroughfares.

We are always purchasing good books. We seek out, and pay a premium for, valuable books, including rare books, fine bindings, illustrated books, first editions, signed books, and more. For details, call or email, or for a brief overview click here.

In addition to offering a fresh and diverse selection of books in our shop, we also offer  book searches, acquisitions development consultations, appraisals, movie rentals, and mail order. Most of our current inventory is searchable here. Orders are processed daily, packed responsibly, and shipped promptly.
