Anthropologie floral blouse

One of my favourite things to do is search for antique books, especially kids books. Another one of my favourite things to do is to go for coffee with my friends. So naturally I was excited upon discovering Mandolin Books & Coffee Company in the Highlands area in Edmonton. That area is bustling with unique and fun shops, definitely a fun place to spend the afternoon! 

*The top I am wearing is old Anthropologie. Similar ones can be found here & here.*

Mandolin Books Edmonton

They have a wonderful variety of second hand books, with newer titles and vintage ones. I picked up a beautiful vintage Bible story book for Emery. There is more information about the books they carry here. They have a  little patio in the back during the warmer months, as well as seating inside. I would say it's not really stroller friendly, unless you use a tiny umbrella stroller.

I thought these little "Blind Date with a Book" bundles were so very cute! The store also has a Coffee Shop with a variety of snacks, coffee and drinks.  I would highly recommend the vegan cookies, so yummy! What are some hidden gems in your city?
