The quaint family feel of the store allows customers to browse through the selection of secondhand books as if they were looking through a friend’s collection as every book in Sellers & Newel has been specially picked by Peter and his staff. 

While the store may be on the smaller side, the books here are nothing but quality picks.

This bookstore doesn't carry the typical bestsellers you might expect to find in most stores. Instead, Sellers & Newel stocks literature from the 20th century and genres range from poetry, drama, science fiction and crime fiction, as well as niche topics like martial arts and philosophy.

While the bookstore is home to the best secondhand books, it is also a cool space to hang out after hours as it turns into an intimate event space called the Literary Society. 

Whether you are looking to watch talented singers and poets perform, or you think you have what it takes to take the stage, check out its website for more info on the Literary Society.
