Create an itinerary including Attic Books
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.

  • A lovely store! Lots of antique, vintage books, postcards, cards, wall arts, etc. They have a basement where they have their sale items. And 2nd floor where there were even more books and lots of wall art. So much to see and explore! Staff are really friendly and helpful. You can also submit a request for a specific book or item on a written paper and they will keep an eye on it for you and contact you via whichever method you prefer.
  • Amazing variety of books from science, scifi, literature, law, crime, medicine, nature, health, nutrition, self-help, vehicles etc. There's amazing deals on the basement level. The rest of the books on other floors are equally affordable with attractive pricing
  • HUGE used book store! Ju popped in while visiting my sister but you could easily spend hours in there looking at everything. 3 floors (didn't check out the bottom floor which I think was a discounted section) pretty much every kind of book you could think of, plus some prints and other cool things. Friendly staff too! Definitely will be back if I'm ever in the area again!
  • A nice used book store with a plethora of options and friendly staff. It is truely a book store of the past. Three levels of used books all of which I found to be reasonably priced. There is literally a book for everyone here although it may take a few minutes to find. #localguides
