The Village Bookshop is a eclectic independent bookstore in beautiful Bayfield, Ontario. Our carefully chosen inventory reflects our commitment to support Canadian writers, local authors and quality literature. We stock new releases, bestsellers, cook books for all occasions and levels, young adult, non-fiction, and a healthy splash of humour. Our children's section is sought out by librarians across Middlesex, Huron and Perth counties for books that inspire toddlers.
Puzzles and games are the classic companion to a good weekend. We carry quality Canadian designed and made puzzles for all age groups. Children's toys that inspire open ended play and creativity are stocked selectively. We strive to eliminate waste and our products are meant for the long term, to be passed along to friends and family or remain on the cottage shelf for generations.
Try our favourite readers from France. Izipizi's both classic and contemporary look with a soft silicone finish are popular with all ages. We love their SCREEN collection, designed to protect your eyes by filtering 40% of blue light (emitted by computer screens, smartphones, tablets, TVs, etc). Look for familiar styles as well as new, limited edition colours each season. Good news just in...if we don't have your dream style we can order them for you. Don't forget about sun protection for your little ones, we now have Izipizi sunglasses for the youngest pair of eyes in your family.
Something for everyone, special orders always welcome!
With links to Canada's strongest Bookselling communitys we have access to an international database that opens the world of books to us, which we pass directly onto you. If a book is out of print we can instantly search other member bookshops across North America for that last stray copy and have it posted directly to you.
Most of all we read, everything we can and whenever we can, we enjoy keeping up with the latest trends and then venture beyond the world of lists, and bestsellers, and big box store driven trends, to find truly remarkable reads just for you.
Please browse our site, or come and talk to us about what you are interested in and we can help you find the right book.
