Best Place to Buy a Book: Fair's Fair


Fair's Fair

"Moby Dick," "To Kill a Mockingbird," "Romeo and Juliet," "Pride & Prejudice"; we all grew up reading the classics, as if it were a right of passage into adulthood. Relive your younger days or seek new reading material at the 2016, 2017 and 2018’s Best Place to Buy a Book in Calgary: Fair’s Fair Books. This secondhand book store opened in Calgary in 1988, with the owner’s family stacking 7,000 books in the store three days before opening. To this day, the quaint store is still family-run and over half of the employees are related, making it a fun and dynamic place to work.

Stopping by the Inglewood location of Fair’s Fair to browse for your newest obsession or perhaps the New York Times Bestseller, you may unintentionally find yourself being drawn into this enchanting treasure trove and absent-mindedly losing track of time. Hours can quickly dissolve here exploring what feels like infinite aisles of floor-to-ceiling bookcases filled with more books than you can imagine. Whatever you’re looking for, Fair’s Fair has an A-Z of everything from classic literature, romantic fiction, encyclopedias of science and cookery books, comics, Star Wars collectors’ items, and children’s fairy tales. Happy hunting!
