We are a small, curated independent bookstore in downtown Oakville, located right behind Corks Restaurant. We focus on contemporary, cutting-edge and critically-lauded fiction, non-fiction and memoir, with a children's section targeted at the sandbox crowd, as well as high-end cooking, gardening and design books. We believe in the slow movement when it comes to buying books: the value in browsing aimlessly, the know-it-when-you-see-it impulse buy, the serendipitous find.
