DustJacket Books & Treasures

DustJacket Books and Treasures has been a hidden gem of Downtown Halifax since 1996. It began in the Maritime Mall, before moving to the new location at 1496 Lower Water Street in July of 2018.

     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 first owner, Chris Cooper, was a book fanatic and he made sure to find a kindred spirit when he passed it on 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”.
