Tips from locals
Wonderful bookstore focused on spiritually enlightening books, philosophy, mysticism, poetry - weekly readings and events.
A true iconic bookstore and more - a reminder that West 4th Avenue was called 'Rainbow Road' in the 70's and that Kitsilano was a Hippy neighborhood.
the most AMAZING bookstore (they sell WAY more than just books, trust me!) within walking distance. I recommend walking 3rd street all the way there and passing all the beautiful houses and gardens, all the way to Alma Street and turn left to go to 4th and it's right there! Also right next to…
It has much more than just books!! So cool! Walk down 3rd ave all the way to Alma, to 4th, then find yourself in an adorable little shopping district, including Banyen Books and Aphrodites Pie! SO wonderful.
