COVID 19 - Shop Arrangements

Changed Shop Arrangements due to the COVID-19 crisis. It is with regret, but necessary, that we have decided to move to an “Appointment Only” basis of operation.  We will still be operating form the shop most days & will be responding promptly to orders via email, phone and websites.  All orders will be dealt with quickly [although there may be some small postal delays as Australia Post also deals with COVID-19].  The shop phone is 08-84100216,  and email is  [email protected].  We will also be increasing the amount of stock listed on our website so that as much as we can we make your website experience like an electronic walk through the shop.  To help with on-line orders we have reduced the "in Australia" post charges - and we have a lot of experience in posting books all over the world receiving a lot of positive feedback about the quality and speed of this service. 


Welcome to Adelaide Booksellers at 12 Twin Street, Adelaide and a world of secondhand,out-of-print & antiquarian books. Established in 1979, we are professional booksellers with both on-line and bricks & mortar stores. It's easy to browse most of our stock on-line or you can drop in to the shop and enjoy our peaceful surroundings.  We have over 30,000 quality secondhand books [most out-of-print] across a wide range of topics including South Australian history, military history, collectable childrens', art, general fiction, crime fiction and much, much more.  A lot of our stock, but not all, is online - so a telephone call or email is worth a try.   BUT - if we haven't got what you're after then we'll help you find it.  As one of Adelaide's most highly regarded secondhand bookstores we have a reputation for quality books and excellent customer service.  Phone  08 84100216 or email [email protected]  


How to Find Us   Located on the Lower Ground Floor, 12 Twin Street, just around the corner from Rundle Mall and a few yards east of Adelaide Arcade.    Twin Street runs off Rundle Mall [parallel to Adelaide Arcade] almost opposite the Richmond Hotel.  The stairs are wide and gentle or you can take the lift if you choose which makes it easy for disabled access or bringing prams and pushers.  Moving around the store is also easy with wide aisleways.
