On my way to visit an acupuncturist’s office in Crawford Lane, I spotted Ke Li Da Book Shop in the same block. It was a nice discovery to me! Bookstores here on the island are typically stationery/office-supply shops, likely stocking all sorts of other goods.
The lady owner of Ke Li Da told me she has been in business for 34 years. With a photocopier machine at the front of the shop, and postal service offered, the bookshop serves as a convenient stop for a fairly bustling lunch time crowd probably from offices in the vicinity. In my last visit, there were 2 waiting to photocopy and another guy asking for a receipt book. However she has rented part of her space to a barber who was featured on a television programme.
- Decadry transfer decal — 1.80
- Falcon C6 envelopes — $1.00 (a pack of 22)
As I have fond memories of a bookstore in my neighbourhood when I was growing up, I’m most happy to come across neighbourhood bookstores that remain in business.
