About Us

Sellers & Newel Second-Hand Books opened on College Street, in the heart of Toronto's Little Italy, in November 2011. Flying in the face of advice from our online security experts, the store's name combines the surname of proprietor Peter Sellers with his mother's maiden name.

Since June 2015, the Sellers & Newel Literary Society has hosted hundreds of intimate performances by musicians from around the world, drawing audiences of 30-45 people into the 600 square foot storefront venue several times a week. Performers are always compensated with 100 per cent of the ticket proceeds.

The shop is small but the stock is carefully selected, each book chosen and shelved by Sellers. With the exception of Jazz and Blues books, the list of inventory is kept in his head and he usually knows what's in stock on any given day. We are happy to fill special requests for books of any value, if we can.
