   DustJacket Books & Treasures

    ...has been a hidden gem of Downtown Halifax since 1996 when it was originally opened in the Maritime Mall on Barrington Street. 

    Originally specializing in antique and Maritime books, the store is undergoing a transformation which will venture to hold on to the traditions of the past while bringing the store forward into 2019. 

   The NEW LOCATION in the Alexander Keith’s Brewery Building has given space for DustJacket to grow into a community hub where people of all backgrounds can come together over a love of the written word. 

     The original owner, Chris Cooper, was a book fanatic himself and made sure to find a kindred spirit when he sold it to Lorena Lewis in 2011. The new owner, Rachael Marie Gay, is happy to continue a bookstore built on the motto  “By book lovers, for book lovers”
