“Where imagination meets creativity”
The storefront location has a wonderful history and is located in a beautiful building on the bank of the Tay River in Heritage Perth.
Our store is overflowing with unique gifts, and lovely items for the home, along with a huge assortment of books, for children and adults alike. We are known for our ”Boredom Busters”: games, puzzles, and arts & craft kits. We also carry many books from local authors.
Our location is rich in history as the former location of Haggis’ Home-made Candy. Sophia Haggis is fondly remembered as ‘The Candy Lady’ Her father, James Haggis, started the candy business in Perth, back in 1926, and Sophia used much of his original equipment. She ran the store until she retired in 1988.
Meet The Owner – Leslie Wallack
I moved from city life to Perth in 2000, and never looked back, finding Perth a great example of community plus a perfect combination of a comfortable everyday pace yet always offering something exciting year-round.
Opening The Book Nook & Other Treasures in 2007 was a dream come true. Sharing my love of reading in a brick & mortar store allows face to face discussions, comparisons and recommendations in a very fun and personalized way. Deciding to add “Other Treasures” allows me to hear and provide community requests, trends, and needs.
I launched this website to better serve customers during the COVID-19 outbreak. However, my long term goal is to improve service near and far for all.
Thank you greatly for supporting small business!
