Review:

“Really cute little book store at the top of Bourke Street. I say ‘little’, but that’s a bit of a lie: it’s deceivingly large once you take a stroll inside! Have only been in for a brief visit but the lovely lady working at the time was very helpful in terms of trying to assist me to track down a book I needed!”- Brooke Hutchinson
