DUSTJACKET BOOKS AND TREASURES has been a hidden gem of Downtown Halifax since 1996 when it opened in the Maritime Mall, before moving to the NEW LOCATION in July of 2018.


     Originally specializing in antique and Maritime books, the store is undergoing a transformation which will venture to hold on to the traditions of the past while bringing the store forward into 2019.

     The first owner, Chris Cooper, was a book fanatic himself and he made sure to find a kindred spirit when he sold it to Lorena Lewis in 2011. The new owner, Rachael Marie Gay, is happy to continue a bookstore built on the motto  “By book lovers, for book lovers”

            INTRODUCING OUR ONLINE STORE


    Since moving in to our new space we have been reorganizing and preparing for an online store.  All that hard work is starting to pay off.  The web store is currently open in view only mode as we continue to fine tune and catalogue every book in our store.  We will be launching full functionality early in 2019.

     Whether you live far away and need a special title delivered to your home or you are local and simply want to peruse our selection before you visit, click HERE to have a look around.

OUR HALIFAX LOCATION


    The N
EW LOCATION in the Alexander Keith’s Brewery Building has given space for DustJacket to grow into a community hub where people of all backgrounds can come together over a love of the written word.

     

     DustJacket’s new space allows for a range of possibilities.
With our brand new chairs and tables there is a comfortable
place to take advantage of the free wi-fi, to read a prologue
before buying a book, or to rest while the other members
of your party look for their own treasures.


   From book clubs to ASL classes and from tutoring to
writers workshops, there are many exciting prospects
for the future of DustJacket Books and Treasures.
