Knit one, read one.
Ripper yarns.

We stock words, in lots of inspiring, hand-picked books
We stock wool, amazing yarns with a story to tell
Calligraphy sets to make beautiful lines
(On cards with surprises)

Elegant Japanese papers to fold

And games to bring us back together
We listen to people, and take time with them. We are a sanctuary, a haven and a destination.


We don't do online sales.
Our books will never ask for your email address.
If you just want a book delivered to your door, we can recommend the following Australian online book sellers:

Marlowes Books - Rare, Out of Print and Hard to Find books

Booktopia - Australia's leading online bookstore with over 4 million titles

But if you'd like to hold a book before you buy it
Or find something you didn't know you wanted
Or just slow down and smell the pages
Come and see us.
