We love books. Sam especially loves books that you can't really find in normal bookstores. So we decided to give BooksActually a shot. We walked allll the way to Tiong Bahru from River Valley. No easy feat. But we arrived.
The wall art detailing the shop front was already an intriguing invite into the shop.
We were met with a quaint and beautifully eclectic shop, books piled up neatly.
I saw series of books that I've never seen before in normal bookstores. All with really cool titles and topics.
The shop was just decorated so prettily and quirkily. Old school rulers?? Haven't seen these in ages.
AND THE CAT? Just sleeping quietly on the books. Too cute.
The bookshop also leads to a back room of antiques. Really beautiful stuff, ranging from glass bottles, to traditional photos, to old school wall calendars.
All in all, not your average bookstore at all. Really unlike anything I've ever seen.
