A gem of a find, Books Actually is a haven for the hopelessly nostalgic people. This place is an oasis of hidden treasures from yesteryears.
Just being inside this bookstore of sort, is actually quite therapeutic I would say. A vast collection of items were on display. From audio cassette tapes to country erasers to jotter books to vinyls and lots more.
Polaroid and vintage SLR cameras were also on sale.
How can you forget this? PEZ mechanical dispenser. Not just limited to The Incredibles.
Author pencils at $1.50 a piece? No way, Jose. You guys just know how to crack IKEA up.
And of course a snobbish cat which refused to look at the camera.
I love this place. I really do. It’s arty, it’s farty but the prices for the items were way too exorbitant. In short, this place is “for your eyes only”.
Books Actually is at 9 Yong Siak Street (Tiong Bahru)
