This is definitively the best bookshop in Darwin.  It is small but packs a lot of punch.  Every time I visit this shop, I always find something to buy bookwise.  In addition, Peter has the most amazing collection of photographs of dDarwin that have been made into cards – five for $10 and the imagery is to die for.  I always buy them, as they are great for sending a letter to friends and reminding them of the paradise we live in.

Peter also has wonderful glass sea creatures, I think they are from the Jam Factory in Adelaide.  I know that Ihave two of the prototypes and have bought some that he has had in the store as gifts.  They are the perfect paper weight and a collection of them also looks great on louvres with the light shining through.

He also has these wonderfully small framed pieces which have the tinest sea shells and objects in them.  These too make wonderful gifts – the smallest piece of framed art.

If you are looking for a bookshop with a difference, try Absolutely.  Peter doesn’t stock every commercial book, but I assure you that you won’t be disappointed with the choice.  I also think he stocks the most comprehensive range of gay and lesbian literature in Darwin.

UPDATE:  Peter keeps Asian hours – 10am to 10pm – most civilised!
