There is a little book store in Manly, nestled in a cluster of divine Art Deco shop fronts on Whistler Street. It goes by the name of Desire books and it's been there for about 8 years, they specialise in all good second hand books (the smell is so very comforting).  I dropped by today to say hi to Katy who owns it with her husband Kuba, it's clear how much they love their little store and how beautifully they cared for and grown it since taking over from the previous culture loving owners Kreesha and Adam. There aren't too many creative individual and unique shops in Manly so I just wanted to pay a little homage to Desire. Do yourself some good and get lost in a pre-loved book on the velour lime armchairs at 3/3 Whistler Street Manly.

I really like second hand book stores. Being a bookworm myself, it's just so nice to know that someone has loved a book before me. There's one just opened in the next suburb to me doing vintage furniture and coffee too. What more could you ask for!

I just discovered your lovely blog. I'm just new into blogging & have just finished off my own blog on fashion & interior design.
I had a lot of fun putting it together. I would love your feedback on it if you've got a spare minute.
