Bangalow Newsagency, 26 Byron St, Bangalow Ph. (02) 6687 1396
In Bangalow, there seems to be a new and trendy shop popping up every other week, but the Bangalow Newsagency and Book Shop has been around for donkeys ages. Caroline and Richard seem to know everyone who is anyone in the town and are always available with a friendly greeting and time to help.
Not just a place to get your new stapler or ball point pen, lotto tickets (if you’re that way inclined) or greeting cards (including a Hope Street card), they also have an excellent range of popular books available. And magazines. A really, really good selection of magazines. Not just the trashy ones. The nice ones too. Printed on non-glossy, recycled paper. With not much advertising inside them. And interesting and smart articles. Those sorts of magazines.
The Bangalow Newsagency is stationary shop that goes the extra mile. Considered the hub of the community in the heart of Bangalow, Hope Street Cards are stoked we get to sit on the shelves in this friendly and lovely Newsagency.
Maggie & Mr Jones Espresso Bar, 3/15 Tamar St, Ballina Ph. 0448 479 305, Facebook
Maggie and Mr Jones is not just a ridiculously good coffee shop with ridiculously good coffee. It’s a social enterprise that gives back to the community. ALL of the profit from the ridiculously good cup of coffee you buy (or the Hope Street Cards you purchase) is donated back to causes which provide opportunities for employment and training to local people with a disability.
But the team at Maggie and Mr Jones are pretty totally special as well. They don’t just service consistently ridiculously good coffee. They also have a pretty awesome breakfast and lunch menu that has all these gluten free and dairy free and paleo/everything free options to meet all the peoples dietary needs too. And if this is not enough, they are the friendliest of people. It’s like eating at your friend’s place. Homely. Welcoming. Lovely. And the coffee is ridiculously good.
So, Maggie and Mr Jones. Ridiculously good coffee creating social change. And selling Hope Street Cards.
The Book Warehouse, 107-109 Keen St, Lismore, Ph. (02) 6621 4204, Facebook
For years and years and years (like decades now), the Booker family has been buying all their greeting cards from The Book Warehouse. And we all know the importance of gifting a good card! Even outside of our family, across the Northern Rivers The Book Warehouse is well known for its excellently curated selection of greeting cards. And we feel very lucky that Hope Street Cards are now a part of this selection.
There are other wonderful things in this very big store as well. The Book Warehouse has the largest selection of books in the Lismore city and also stocks a large range of art supplies and gifts. The staff are super friendly, wickedly knowledgeable and more than willing to help you find whatever it is you are looking for.
Avid Reader, 193 Boundary Street, West End Ph. (07) 3846 3422, Website
When Sam spent the good part of a decade living in West End this is where a good part of her savings went. Many years on, Avid Reader is still one of the ‘must visit’ places every time we visit West End and we are pinching ourselves that Hope Street Cards are sitting on the shelves of this beautiful shop. Because this is the sort of bookshop that dreams are made of.
Filled with a comprehensive selection of fiction and non-fiction, gifts, CDs and DVDs, this independent book store is a treasure trove of carefully selected titles and bits and pieces. With a continuous events program ranging from book clubs to author talks, Avid Reader is sure to inspire, intrigue and capture book lovers hearts.This is everything a book store should be. Filled with classics for school and alternative reading material. The coffee shop at the rear has a great range of treats to tempt you and the coffee isn't bad either. There are regular speaking, reading engagements and these are a hub for West End locals. And once Sam met Marieke Hardy here and she complimented Sam on her outfit (!). Was pretty much the best day ever.
The welcoming, helpful staff are often authors themselves, disguised as knowledgeable retail servants. They are also amazeballs at gift wrapping. Overall the wonderful range of all things bookish guarantees Avid's success and status as much-loved haven. We can’t really believe our cards live here now.

Chapter Two Books, 8-12 Mount Barker Rd, Stirling Ph. (08) 8339 1835, Website
Full disclosure, this is the only stockist we haven’t yet been able to personally visit yet. In all honesty, we haven’t yet made it to Radelaide. But we will – we promise.
So we did the next best thing. Sam sent her Adelaide-born housemate to this “super cute” bookstore, undercover to check it out.
Turns out this is no run of the mill second hand book store. This family run business is hosted by two passionate “book worms” with a love and care for the appearance, quality and content of all the books in their collection. There are some incredibly rare, out of print, autographed and valuable books in this store, amongst the more classic, popular and tantalising vintage finds.
Apparently this is a “must see” book store. But a must see with plenty of time up one’s sleeve. Because like all good book stores, you may not want to leave.
