Antique Store · Hidden Gem · Gift & Specialty Shop
Attic Books is one of Canada's largest antiquarian and second-hand bookstores. We have three floors of books, maps, prints, paper collectibles, such as ephemera and postcards, and eccentric antiques that appeal to readers, scholars and seasoned collectors alike. We also retail Colour by Schubert's photo cards and Charles Van Sandwyk's Fine Art Cards and Books. The atmosphere is spacious, bright, relaxed and professional, not to mention architecturally beautiful, with its original tin ceilings, hardwood maple floors and all the charisma of a century building. This, along with the help of our friendly and knowledgeable staff, will ensure that every visit to Attic Books will be memorable.

  • I have loved this business since they were located in the attic. It is always a pleasure to shop here; the staff are friendly and I usually find at least one new book. This summer they have been providing lemon infused water for the human customers (to go with the plain water for the canine companions). Attic Books is a wonderful place to lose yourself in.
  • One of the best used book stores I've ever been to! This rivals Chapters/Indigo in size and certainly wins in terms of selection. Very friendly and helpful staff, and there is always a hidden gem (or 10) to be found.
  • My favorite bookstore o go to. The pricing is pretty good and all they're book are in mint condition. I highly recommend
  • Impressive selection of books of all sorts. Antique photos, artwork and books make for lots of hidden gems. The girl working near entrance was welcoming and friendly. Other staff seemed suspicious as I took my time browsing; maybe understandable because it is downtown. When I asked a question about a specific genre the lady was puzzled and unwilling to be helpful.
  • This place is absolutely fantastic! They have a wide variety of books ranging from history, to languages, to cooking, to philosophy. All the books are in great condition and are fairly priced. I would definitely recommend this book store for its variety and prices.
