About Us

We are a new and used bookstore located in the Driftwood Centre on Pender Island. We carry a wide selection of fiction, non-fiction, and biography, and our fantastic children's section includes classics as well as new favourites. 

Along with books, you'll find a great selection of gifts and greeting cards, as well as local artist cards, sketchbooks, and some art supplies. We also carry toys by Melissa & Doug, puppets by Folkmanis, journals by Paperblanks, and candy and chocolate by Harlans on Salt Spring Island.

In Talisman's Gallery annex, you'll see something different every month. Pender's local artists run the gamut from glass, wood, ceramic, and felt sculptural work to collage to photography and all manner of painting in all styles. Come and see how our idyllic home inspires our talented locals. You won't be disappointed.
