Grand Days is about the tactile; Books, Records, Collectables. The stuff of art, culture, society, history. We offer the opportunity to tread an unexpected path, to be surprised and excited; by a timeless classic, an obscure album, a book that has travelled the world and had numerous lovers or been faithful to the one companion. Like any good bookstore our fiction range covers the classics, contemporary and Australian literature, sci fi, and thrillers, plays and poetry. We have books on art, architecture, history, the sciences, personal development, business, sport, theatre, film, music, true crime along with foreign language, reference and text books.
We have a room devoted to vinyl which houses an eclectic mix of Rock, Pop, Funk Soul and Disco, Jazz, Country, Folk, Latin and Classical records. Collectable items such as clothes, bric a brac, along with unique artefacts and mementos round out the selection.
Grand Days has history. Paul Bugden established his Kings Cross bookshop 17 years ago in Victoria Street. Bugden's Books moved to the larger William Street site in 2002 and added vinyl to the mix. Tamara and Tom took over in 2013 and, in homage to both Frank Moorehouse's heroine Edith Campell Berry and all things glorious, named the shop Grand Days.
