Who We Are

We are Candice and Kristen - 2 best friends from Southwest Manitoba!

If you know us, you know that we have been pretty inseparable since meeting in Grade 3 and are chosen sisters.

If you don’t know us, you should know these fast-facts:

  • We are both very much introverts
  • We LOVE books and we LOVE reading
  • We LOVE a great deal!!
  • We both aspire to be successful business women!

Our Product Selection Process

We take product selection seriously!

It’s our guarantee that we put every effort possible into selecting quality products that meet our standards and think you will love.

When choosing which books to fill our shelves, we look for:

  • Books in excellent condition
  • Books with buzz
  • Book to screen adaptations
  • Books we have read or have on our personal wishlists

You will notice our Gift Boutique is currently empty. Our primary focus at this time is to build our book selection. That said, we are actively and carefully curating merchandise to fill this section with products we hope you will love. You can expect these products to be:

  • Literary and bookish themed
  • Mostly local or Canadian sourced
  • Library themed housewares or decor

How We Shelve and Price Our Books

All previously read books on this site have been carefully hand-selected by both of us. Each books is photographed so you can see the book you will receive!

We do our best to make sure we have categorized and priced them fairly according to these standards:

  • Premium Picks: books in like-new condition that we consider new releases (released 2019 or after) and are priced starting at $10.00
  • Perfect Picks: books in like-new condition that have been released in 2018 or before and are priced starting at $7.00
  • Almost Perfect Picks: books that we consider to be in great condition but upon closer inspection may have imperfections like writing, discoloration, bent spine, or handling wear and are priced starting at $5.00

All Brand-New Bargain Books are also carefully curated by us with you in mind! These books are discounted books sourced from a reputable Canadian outlet distributor and may show some minor markings, stickers, or signs of handling wear. For this reason, all books in this category start at 40% off the cover price.

We are also excited to introduce our growing Box Sets and Collections category! This category will include used and new pre-packaged or currated collections and will be priced as a set.
