Things To Know About The Book Garden

The Book Garden is proudly Australian owned and currently celebrating 38 years. We are part of the American Bookstore. We have a physical location in Brisbane. A momentous event took place in a Sydney garage on September 14th 1980. Encouraged by our father (bookseller Maurice Zavelsky), we (Deborah and Carmel) began The Book Garden.

We started the business with a tiny budget, a small range of stock and two cars. We split Sydney into two sales areas and began visiting schools and childcare centres with boxes of books for sale. After the death of Maurice in July 1981, Deb moved to Brisbane. It was here that The Book Garden put down roots inside American Bookstore.

Throughout our years of business we have met many wonderful customers - a source of constant inspiration and innovation for us. Thank you for your feedback and support over the years.
