For two days only, you can pick up some incredible deals on all books (including old/collectables), DVDs and Vinyl LPs. Friday, July 22 from 9.00am to 7.00pm and Saturday, July 23 from 9.00am to 5.00pm. This massive clear out sale is a real bonus considering their normal prices are already so cheap.
Over 100,000 books are on display at any one time in this is massive bookshop, with several thousand books donated by the State Library of Western Australia each week. Added to this are thousands of DVD's and Vinyl LP Records (some many years old).
The massive choice of good quality and unique books at Book Bazaar is something bookshops bound by commercial considerations would find hard to match.

I doubt you would find another place displaying so many quality books with such a multitude of titles (perhaps a few hidden unique treasures). No need to imagine what lies in the vaults of the State Library, just pop into Book Bazaar.
The sections and categories are clearly marked, but who does not love flipping through books, perhaps uncovering unavailable or out of print editions as well as current titles. This is certainly possible at Book Bazaar.
Do not rush, but . . .
An experienced bargain hunter knows not to hesitate, if you spot that treasure, grab it. This unique bookshop has no rain checks or sourcing an extra copy from the supplier.
This is a rare chance to pick up many valuable books and what may be otherwise unremarkable books, which are old, maybe, printed 50 to 100 years ago. Perhaps books you might not normally buy or find elsewhere.
Book Bazaar has thousands of vinyl long playing records (LPs), donated by the State Library of Western Australia, in excellent condition with many of the album covers still in their protective plastic.
As many of us remember, the album covers were as popular as the music, works of art in themselves and something to read while listening to the music.
Benefit from The State Library's collection of unique and rare records accumulated over many years. Choose from an eclectic mix of musical styles ranging from classical to rock and everything in between.
Choose from thousands of DVDs of all kinds. Movies, music, documentaries, kids and TV shows. You name it and it is probably there and they are all half the marked price.
Friendly volunteers who assist the Book Bazaar Supervisor, Elke Schaumann staff the sales. With such a large collection of books, I found that someone to point the way is an absolute necessity. If you have thought of becoming a volunteer, drop an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 9381 0193.
For your convenience
It is easy to lose track of time, so free parking and public toilets ensure you can can linger and browse awhile.
