The Book Exchange is a well loved secondhand bookstore & coffee shop. We have a selection of baked goods & quality books on offer as well as a comfortable space to relax in. The bookstore was established back in 1982. Many years later the store went through a major refurbishment & re-opened in July 2015. The Book Exchange was then sold to a local in November 2016 who has added her own touch to the place. We are so pleased our community has an old school space to enjoy the finer things in life, being great books & wonderful coffee.
We source our coffee beans from Mt Atkinson Coffee & t leaf T provide our delicious range of loose leaf teas. We sell Charlie's & Phoenix organic juices in store as well as a range of smoothies and iced drinks.
Although we specialise in secondhand books, we also have a selection of DVDs, CDs, vinyl records, jigsaw puzzles and magazines. We also stock FRANK Stationery. The journals, notebooks & diaries we we have on offer are seconds (you'll find minor imperfections if you look hard enough) & so are heavily discounted.
With plenty more ideas being thrown around (including live music, poetry readings & market stalls) make sure you keep an eye out for the new goings-on at your local bookstore & coffee shop on the cutest corner in Glen Eden.
Bring in a book and exchange it for another of the same quality & genre for 50% off the marked price.
