Ferret Bookshop has something of everything: there’s bound to be something that piques your interest if you put the time into looking for it. Like Quilters Bookshop on Ghuznee St, it has a great range of old, rare and hard-to-find books.

Pop into their new location just outside the Left Bank on Cuba St. for a browse. A great selection of titles with a cleaner setup, Ferret’s new location only signals good things to come from this secondhand bookshop.

If you’re looking for a rare New Zealand classic novel, or something about spoons made in Vienna during the reign of Franz Joseph I you’re in luck. Ferret has it all. This eclectic but impressive range of secondhand books will drive any book nut wild.

Ferret Bookshop might not be the biggest, best, or newest bookshop, but that doesn't matter, because within the Cuba Street bookshop trade, it's one of the last of a dying breed - and as a result, a regional treasure. Small, yet overflowing with secondhand books, it's the place where you'll find that book you never expected, or perhaps that book you never even considered you'd want to own. Wander in and have a look around, you deserve it.
