  • The most amazing bookstore I've been in. They have thousands of reasonably priced books on every subject and some rare older books. Be prepared to spend at an hour if not longer browsing.
  • The best used book store I visited yet! Perfectly classified and very various. Great service and recommandations from the staff!
  • I've been going here for years and years. Love it! My idea of what a perfect used book shop should be.
  • Fantastic range of pre-owned books. All subject s under the sun. A must for bookists. Open 7 days a week 9-5. Many rare books especially on the Kettle Valley Railway.
  • Amazing variety of used books. The volume is quite overwhelming unless you're looking for something specific.
