Noticed how our cook book aisle has been a little dark lately? That’s because our front windows have been shuttered and under construction – one of the last phases of our storefront renovations. But now, they’re finally near completion. Glass was installed this week, and the finishing touches are being put on the frames.
These windows will be playing host to some eye-catching new displays in the near future, so keep a lookout!
February is one of the most exciting times of year to come in to Bolen Books and check out all the cool new stuff we’re carrying!
In January, Bolen Books owner Samantha Holmes was busy out east, in Toronto, Ontario, visiting trade shows and finding out all about what’s new and in-demand in the world of gifts and games! Now the orders have been placed, and we’ve got loads of interesting things showing up each day!
Here are just some of our recent arrivals!
Jellycat is one of our most popular lines of beanbag plush animals. Our most recent shipment includes several varieties of cat, sheep, rabbit, and more!
In the market for a new lamp? Check out some of these beautiful new styles we just received in! You’ll also find some old favourites from the collection we carried last year. This year we’ve added floor lamps as well as table lamps!

We’re stocking back up on some of the things we sold out of over the holidays. Many exciting things have arrived over the last few days, including these mugs (singles and sets) from McIntosh Trading!
There are lots of excellent new designs for a variety of world famous artists, as well as some crowd favourites that we’ve featured previously.
There’s a beautiful display set up just in front of our magazine section, so come check it out!
