Vinnies Book Fair

Swap your spare change for a stack of books.

Aren't book fairs dandy? I love being able to show up with a collection of gold coins and leave with a fat stack of fiction.

The good folk at St Vincent de Paul, the community organisation who do a lot of good in Aotearoa AND have the best opshops in Wellington, believe all books were created equal. Their twice-yearly book fairs have works from all genres and types, so if you're a fiend for romance, sci-fi, drama, young adult, cookbooks or practically anything else, you should be well catered for. There will also be a shedload of novels.

The best part: everything is $2 or less. That's cheaper than a few days of overdue fees at the public library. BYO plastic bag.
